Virtual-reality + motion capture
Amy is interested in brain-machine interfaces, both for developing neuroprostheses and as a tool to study motor learning and control. Her work in the Pesaran Lab explored measuring and manipulating neural circuits at varying spatial scales (e.g. ECoG, LFP, spikes) using multiple modalities (optical and electrical) and was supported by a L’Oreal USA for Women in Science Fellowship. She is currently the Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Bioengineering at the University of Washington, Seattle and core staff scientist at the Washington National Primate Research Center.
