analysis, force transducers, EMG, TMS, muscle/nerve stimulation,
musculoskeletal modeling, statistical analysis software, and/or
programming (MATLAB, LabView) is a plus.

The labís specific research interests include:
1. Understand neurophysiologic and biomechanical mechanisms for poor
hand function following aging or neurologic disorders such as stroke.
2. Develop rehabilitative interventions and employ ergonomic design to
improve the quality of life for persons with sensorimotor impairment.

We collaborate with investigators in diverse backgrounds including
engineers, kinesiologists, neuroscientists, therapists, and physicians
