From November 11 – 15, 2017, graduate student Dante Smith had the opportunity to attend the Society for Neuroscience 2017 meeting and present his research. At this meeting he presented a poster on his project investigating voice motor control, and the vocal responses by human subjects when they experienced changes to their somatosensory feedback. In […]
The summer of 2017 brought many changes for the Guenther Lab, the most noticeable being our relocation of our main lab space at 635 Commonwealth Ave to 677 Beacon Street. After months of construction, packing, and finally the big move, the new lab is fully operational! Here are a few pictures of the new space.
Our brain-machine interface that detects when a human observer sees a robot making a mistake was featured in an article on human-robot interactions in The Christian Science Monitor titled: Robot communication: It’s more than just talk. This article discusses work at Boston University as well as MIT and the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
The Guenther Lab’s Principal Investigator, Frank Guenther, and Assistant Director, Jason Tourville recently attended the 7th International Conference on Speech Motor Control held in Groningen, the Netherlands. The conference, which takes place roughly once every 5 years, brings together colleagues from leading research groups that study speech motor control and related disorders. During the “Windows […]
Our brain-computer interface that detects when a human observer sees a robot making a mistake has gotten a lot of press coverage in the past two weeks, including articles on NPR, Newsweek, Canadian Broadcast Corporation, Wired, New Scientist, Discover, and over 100 other popular and scientific news outlets. Congratulations to Guenther Lab PhD student Andrés Salazar-Gómez as […]
Decoding of intended saccade direction in an oculomotor brain-computer interface In collaboration with Prof. Earl Miller’s lab at MIT, several lab members, including first author Nan Jia, worked on a novel BCI paradigm involving the eye movement system in the brain. By implanting microarrays in multiple prefrontal areas in monkeys, high online BCI performance was […]
