Research Projects

    Our research focuses on understanding the biological mechanisms of voluntary movement and deals equally with speech production and human arm motion. We use mathematical models, robots and behavioral and physiological techniques to assess motor function and the characteristics of motor learning. The overall goals are to understand the interplay of sensory and motor function and most recently, to understand how motor learning and adaptation affects sensory function in speech and limb movement.
