Congrats to our new PhD. Tyler!

On the first week of April 2019, Tyler Feltrow has successfully defended his dissertation. His dissertation title was “Control of balance during locomotion” and the goal of his research was to provide a basic understanding of how the healthy human nervous system regulates balance to successfully stay upright while moving through the environment. The...

Congrats to our new Ph.D. Fernando!

On the last week of March 2019, Fernando Vanderlinde dos Santos has successfully defended his dissertation titled “The Effect of Repetitive Head impacts on Sensory Reweighting and Human Balance”.  The purpose of his experiment was to gain an understanding of how prolonged repetitive head impacts from participation in collision sports change sensory...
