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:


Representation of internal models of action in the autistic brain. C Haswell, J Izawa, L Dowell, SH Mostofsky, and R Shadmehr (2009) Nature Neuroscience 12:970-972. Abstract Citations
