The focus of work in the lab is motor control and learning. We are using robotic devices for behavioral studies and fMRI-compatible robotic device for imaging research. These devices can be used to record human movements, and they can be used to simulate forces and objects, allowing us to measure how participants' interaction with novel objects. Therefore they provide a unique window into the study of human motor learning.
Below is some information on a few past and present research projects. For a more representative picture what what we do, please see the list of current publications. An important aspect of our work involves the technical development of new tools for acquisiton and analysis of behavioral and neuroimaging data for the study of human motor control. We have made a number of these tools openly available below.
