Upcoming Events


Speaker:  Dr. Reza Schadmehr from Johns Hopkins University

Friday, April 14th, 2017

3:30-5:00 pm

Lyles-Porter Hall room 1160

Dr. Shadmehr (http://www.shadmehrlab.org) is a Professor of Biological Engineering and a Professor of Neuroscience.

Dr. Shadmehr's work focuses on understanding how the human brain perceives the world, how it learns, and how it controls our movements.  We study actions of healthy people, as well as people with neurological disorders.  We look for regularities and use mathematics to ask about the origins of these regularities.  Our approach is non-invasive, aiming to never harm.  Our tools include robotics, brain stimulation, and neuroimaging.  We have two long-term aims:  1) to understand the basic function of the motor structures of the brain including the cerebellium, the basal ganglia, and the motor cortex; and 2) to understand the relationship between how our brain controls our movements, and how it controls our decisions.
