Rehabilitation Engineering
Functional Neuromuscular Stimulation
Adaptive Neural Network Control Systems

This position is part of an NIH-funded project directed at the
development and evaluation of adaptive neural network controllers for
use in Functional Neuromuscular Stimulation systems. The project
includes: 1) the design of adaptive feedforward control systems using
neural network techniques, 2) the evaluation and iterative development
of the control system using computer simulated musculo-skeletal models,
and 3) the experimental evaluation of the control system in experiments
on human subjects. The work on the project will be performed at the
Neural Control Lab, which is equipped for both the experimental and
computational aspects of this project, and will include collaboration
with researchers from the Department of Physical Medicine &
Rehabilitation at the University of Kentucky and with researchers from
Case Western Reserve University. The position is available for graduate
work at the M.S. or Ph.D. level at the Center for Biomedical
