Luke E. Miller
Luke joined the Donders Centre for Cognition as an Assistant Professor of Sensorimotor Neuroscience in the fall of 2021. He previously had postdoctoral fellowships at the Donders Institute (w/ Pieter Medendorp) and at the ImpAct Team in Lyon, France (w/ Alessandro Farnè). It was during this time that he began researching the neural and computational mechanisms underlying the sensory embodiment of tools—the ability to use them as somatosensory extensions of the body. His current research aims to uncover the computational principles underlying neural body representation and their plasticity. He currently teaches an MSc course in the Artificial Intelligence department on sensorimotor neurotechnology, which among other things covers the principles of neural prosthetics and brain machine interfaces.
Floris van Wettum
Floris is currently completing his MSc in the Artificial Intelligence Department at Radboud University. For his thesis project, Floris will explore how sensory substitution can be leveraged to create an additional sense of body space. He will then use computational modelling to explore whether this new sensory signal is optimally integrated with existing signals (proprioception and vision).
Rob is currently completing his MSc in the Artificial Intelligence Department at Radboud University. For his thesis project, Rob will explore how different aspects of feedback control (e.g., forward estimation, feedback gain) are implemented by neural population dynamics. To do so he will combine neural network modelling and analyses of pre-existing neural recordings.
Tobias van der Gaag
Tobias completed his MSc thesis in the lab. His thesis project explored whether multisensory integration in peripersonal space reflects Bayesian causal inference. His project involved building a BCI model of visual-tactile integration in peripersonal space and using this model to fit psychophysical data.
