Through my research I am attempting to determine how the brain deals with uncertainty while planning and making arm movements.

Christian Ethier

Christian Ethier - Post-Doctoral Fellow

My research is focused on the development of a neuroprosthesis that uses brain signals to control functional electrical stimulation (FES) and restore grasp function in a monkey model of spinal cord injury.

My research revolves around the refinement of control strategies for cortically controlled functional electrical stimulation (FES). I'm seeking optimal ways to record from motor cortex and in turn stimulate muscles appropriately.

Ricardo Torres

Ricardo Ruiz Torres - Graduate Student, Neuroscience

Ward 5-198

I am interested in sensorimotor processing in the central nervous system. I study how proprioceptive information is encoded in the primary somato- sensory and primary motor cortices and its role in feedback motor control.

Tucker Tomlinson

Tucker Tomlinson - Post-Doctoral Fellow

I'm working to artificially reproduce naturalistic sensations of the cutaneous and proprioceptive sensory systems by directly stimulating neurons in the somatosensory cortex during a simple perception and reaching task.

Paul Wanda

Paul Wanda - Post-Doctoral Fellow

I am currently designing and implementing behavioral experiments to generate the data needed to test theoretical models of neural encoding of uncertainty.
