Photo of Deeksha Goyal.Deeksha Goyal is studying how the brain organizes motor control. Specifically, she wants to see if the brain separately stores information for objects and the forces they exert versus information about how humans can manipulate them using force. To test this, she will be conducting experiments on people in MRI machines while they manipulate a robot that applies different forces to them.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 26, 2015:
