- Sensor-Equipped Glove Could Help Doctors Take Guesswork Out of Measuring Spasticity
An interdisciplinary team of researchers at UC San Diego and Rady Children’s Hospital has developed a sensor-equipped glove that could help doctors measure stiffness during physical exams.
TDLC researcher Leanne Chukoskie is part of the team, and explains, "The multidisciplinary nature of our team is what makes this project so exciting and successful. Experts in signal processing, robotics, printable electronics, neurosciences and medicine came together to transform a subjective process into something that’s objective and could improve patient care and outcomes."

- John Iversen Explores our Perception of Musical Rhythm (3/1/17)
The Scientist article features TDLC's Dr. John Iversen. It profiles his work on the neural mechanisms of rhythm perception, where he has demonstrated the active role of the brain in shaping how a listener perceives a rhythm. Iversen’s other TDLC work examines the impact of music on child brain development, with TDLC researcher Terry Jernigan, and was awarded an NSF science of learning grant to explore the next generation of EEG data collection in the classroom (with TDLC researchers Tzyy-Ping Jung and Alex Khalil). > Click here to read more about his research!
