Congratulations – Ben Shuman is awarded a UWIN Neural Engineering Graduate Fellowship.

Ben_FullOur PhD student, Ben Shuman, has been selected as a Graduate Fellow for the UW Institute for Neuroengineering. The UWIN Fellowship provides two years of support and is a highly prestigious and selective competition. Congratulations, Ben!

Ben’s research uses clinically measured muscle activations (electromyographic data) and the framework of muscle synergies to determine patient specific measures of motor control. His work seeks to examine whether muscle synergies are predictive of or related to clinical treatment outcomes such as improved walking function in patients with cerebral palsy.
