  • Next semester pick 4 papers that influenced the way you think.
  • End-note and papers
    • Write up how you can download PDFs
  • Projector setup
    • Make a better setup?
  • Backup of data
    • Get another backup server?
  • Platform lab
    • Cleanliness and heating

  • Seyed - Neurons in the reticulo-spinal tract respond to postural disturbances (Stapley 2009)
    • Finley - Postural responses in soleus long-latency response, varies with acceleration
  • Keith - Hybrid non-linear optimization - Optimal gait and form of animal locomotion (Popovic)
  • Julia - Understanding how people choose a solution based on redundant motor system
    • Bjorn Diedrekson - Minimization of noise or effort (which is it?) in a finger loading experiment decided that effort was more important than variability
  • Stacie - Slow vs Fast walking
    • Walking faster it is more feedforward
    • Walking slower it is more feedback
    • Is slow walking more stable? (Bruijn 2009) Don't know which is more stable.
  • Lucas - (Dingwell 2000) - Nonlinear time-series analysis.  Is variability in motor signal actually noise?
    • Effort alone is not capable of explaining experimental data
    • Trying to figure out consolidation in motor systems
      • (Carmina 2009) - Same ensemble of neurons can produce different behavior depending on the context.
  • Jeff - Nicolelis (Duke) - On Saturday at SfN 2009 - M1 activity occurs after EMG activity
    • Coordinated control with lagrangians
  • Douglas - Valero-Cuevas 2009 - Computational modeling in neuromechanics
  • Lena - Milner & Franklin literature - Impedance control helps stabilize motor noise
    • Genetic algorithms to evolve structures - Valero-Cuevas 2009
