Dr. Sherwood is an Associate Professor in
the Department of Integrative Physiology. He received his
Ph.D. in kinesiology from the University of Southern California
in 1983. After appointments at the University of Maryland
and Texas Woman’s University he joined the faculty at
the University of Colorado in 1985. He was promoted to Associate
Professor in 1992. His research interests focus on the acquisition
and control of voluntary movement in humans utilizing electromyographical
and kinematic analysis techniques, as well as the development
of error detection mechanisms in adults and children.
