Announcement: Researcher receives inaugural Early Career Award from the Society for Neural Control of Movement
Congratulations to Andrew Pruszynski, PhD, on receiving the inaugural Early Career Award from the Society for Neural Control of Movement (NCM).
Pruszynski studies the complex interactions between the mechanical properties of the body and a highly distributed neural circuit. He is exploring how the nervous system handles and exploits these interactions when moving the arm and manipulating objects with the hands
The Award recognizes outstanding contributions by scientists early in their careers that have significantly advanced understanding of the neural control of movement.
“Pruszynski’s intellectual contributions have ranged from feedback control of the upper limb motion to how peripheral tactile neurons extract features during touch,” said Kathleen Cullen, PhD, Vice President and Program Chair, NCM, in an announcement.
