Tushar joined the lab as a MS BME student in 2004.  He studied reach adaptation from a new perspective: learning in order to optimize performance, and not simply cancel a disturbance.  He was part of the team that performed the first fMRI experiments on reach adaptation.  He subsequently joined the BME PhD program at Johns Hopkins University.


His results were published in the following works:


Neural correlates of reach errors. J Diedrichsen, Y Hashambhoy, T Rane, and R Shadmehr (2005) Journal of Neuroscience 25:9919-9931.  Abstract  Citations


Motor adaptation as a process of reoptimization.  J Izawa, T Rane, O Donchin, and R Shadmehr (2008) Journal of Neuroscience 28:2883-2891. Abstract Supplementary-material Citations
