The Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines presents a seminar by James Patton of the University of Illinois at Chicago. The event will be held in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building, Rooms 1116-1118, from 12:15-1:15 p.m. and is open to the public.
James Patton is a professor in the Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He specializes in robotic manipulators to answer rehabilitation questions. Efforts in his research lab focus on developing a better understanding of the sensory-motor system through close interaction with artificial systems and machines. Specifically, Patton is interested in leveraging the knowledge of how the brain acquires, organizes, and executes motor behaviors to solve problems, not only in rehabilitation but also in other endeavors that present challenges to the neuromotor system.
