Characterization of movement kinematics using a machine learning method

The Takeoka lab focuses on understanding how intrinsic capability of spinal cord circuits give rise to movement automaticity. We combine mouse genetics, virus-mediated neurocircuit manipulation and high-resolution kinematics to link neuronal activity of a specific population in the spinal cord to movements. To achieve this, a highly controled closed-loop setting needs to be achieved, detect movements (this is where you come in, to establish a machine learning method to characterize movement kinematics!), record neuronal activity in real time that would elicit electrical signals dependent upon one or both of inputs. You will be working closely with a postdoctoral fellow in the lab.
