BSD OBA - Executive Administrator: Hatsopoulos Lab
About the Department
Research in the Arce-McShane Lab focuses on the principles of cortical and biomechanical control of oral sensorimotor behavior and how these are affected by learning, aging, and disease (https://voices.uchicago.edu/fritziearcemcshanelab/research/; https://oba.bsd.uchicago.edu; https://bsdpostdoc.uchicago.edu/pdo/). Our lab uses a multidisciplinary approach to understand the interplay between sensation and movement using converging evidence from psychophysics, biomechanics, neurophysiology, and computational modeling.
Participation in projects that looks into changes in cortical and biomechanical processes in healthy aging vs. Alzheimer's Disease.
