On Thursday, November 30th, Sungwoo Park defended his dissertation proposal and became our lab's first official Ph.D. candidate. Congratulations Sungwoo!
This past Saturday, Dr. Finley shared some of our recent work on the costs of asymmetry during healthy and hemiparetic walking with attendees at the Orange County Stroke Rehab Network's Annual Research Workshop.
Today we welcomed a group of visitors from the American Heart Association to the lab. We first explained how we use motion capture and other tools to analyze locomotor learning and then, our colleagues from the Neural Plasticity and Neurorehabilitation Lab performed an interactive demonstration of one of the brain-computer interfaces that they are developing for people post-stroke.
Three of our lab members will be presenting posters at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. this year.
On Saturday from 1-5 pm at poster EE25, Dr. Finley will be sharing recent work on the energetic consequences of reducing step length asymmetry in people post-stroke. On Monday from 1-5 pm at posters NN13 and NN14, Aram Kim will present her work on learning and generalization of locomotor skills in virtual environments, and Sungwoo Park will present recent results on the regulation of dynamic balance during locomotor adaptation.
