More than 20 trainees and PIs from the Sensorimotor Superlab at Western University contribute to this reading list. Here are the articles that have interested us this week.
Join the SuperLab
Are you interested in graduate school or a postdoc in sensorimotor neuroscience?
Apply to the Sensorimotor SuperLab.
We have a number of open positions for Graduate Students interested in pursuing studies within one of the many research projects currently underway in the Diedrichsen / Gribble / Pruszynski labs. We are particularly interested in recruiting students who want to work collaboratively between labs.
We are also searching for a Postdoctoral Fellow to work on a specific project studying the neural control of sequential movements. Experience with behavioral work in humans, magnetic resonance imaging, and/or computational modeling are desired.
For more details and for application instructions please see: https://superlab.ca/join
