The Neural Engineering Lab (NEL) studies how different learning and sensing mechanisms interact within the brain, with the final goal of developing neural prostheses to recover lost motor or cognitive functions. The lab’s research is both experimental and computational, with … Continued
We envision a center of excellence for Closed-Loop Engineering for Advanced Rehabilitation (CLEAR) that investigates human-machine interactions, develops advanced wearable, rehabilitation technologies, and enables seamless integration and co-adaptation of rehabilitation machines and humans to assist and augment physical abilities, performance, … Continued
Our research focuses on understanding the normal structure and function of musculoskeletal soft tissues and using this information to develop new tissue engineering and regenerative medicine solutions. Areas of interest include experimental and computational evaluation of tissue structure and function … Continued
The Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory investigates the control mechanism of neuromuscular system in normal and neurologically disordered persons, develops advanced neural-machine interfacing technologies, and applies these techniques to neural control of prosthetics, orthotics, computers, and other assistive devices.
The ABL specializes in the neuromuscular biomechanics of human movement, with an emphasis on aging and disease-related mobility impairment. The lab’s primary research seeks to discover the musculoskeletal and sensorimotor adaptations that underlie a loss of independent mobility, and to … Continued
