Research Summary

Investigates how the brain turns thought into voluntary behaviors and how that knowledge can be used to help persons with paralysis. We study how populations of neurons represent and transform information as a motor plan becomes movement. This approach has required the creation of a novel recording array to study neural ensembles.

Past or Present Projects Available:

Spatiotemporal encoding of motor planning and action in the brain
