The Neuromechanics Lab is part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering Program at the University of Colorado Boulder. The goal of our research program is to use a neuroeconomic approach to gain fundamental knowledge about the subjective costs and rewards underlying movement control.

We try to reverse engineer how the brain controls movement using a combination of approaches involving virtual reality, robotic interfaces, kinetic and kinematic analyses.

Coupled with computational models, these investigations will provide greater insight into the interplay between the biomechanical and sensorimotor processes underlying human movement control and decision-making.
