With Kasras help we became the first lab in the world to do PET imaging of the human brain during motor adaptation (1996)


Kasra joined the lab in 1996 as our first MS student. He built the electronics that measure angular velocities of our first robot, a circuit that continues to function flawlessly after more than 15 years of continuous use. He participated in the PET imaging experiments in which we took our robot to the imaging center and quantified neural correlates of motor learning. He subsequently joined Hughes Electronics Corp. as a research engineer.
