Greg joined the lab in 1999.  He was a MS BME student who focused on quantifying adaptation of forward models.  His tool was saccadic eye movements as a proxy for the forward model during reach adaptation.  He is currently Senior Project Engineer, MPR Associates Inc.


His research results were published in the following works:


A real-time state predictor in motor control: study of saccadic eye movements during unseen reaching movements. G Ariff, O Donchin, T Nanayakkara, and R Shadmehr (2002) Journal of Neuroscience 22:7721-7729.  Abstract  Citations
