Biography

Research

Dr. Rouse studies neural control of arm and finger movements and brain-computer interfaces using high channel count neural recordings. His research examines how we are able to quickly and precisely make coordinated movements like reaching and grasping. The interdisciplinary work combines neuroscience, engineering, and statistics to determine how to best use neural signals to directly control robotic arms and other assistive devices for paralyzed individuals. Rouse recently received an NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
