Courtney joined the lab as a MS BME student in 2008.  She worked on the motor function of children with autism, and discovered that the patterns of generalization in these children suggested a stronger than normal dependence on proprioception.  She subsequently became a Research Programmer at the Brain Imaging Program at Duke University.

                             

Her results were published in the following works:
