Brian Horslen

Postdoctoral Fellow

School of Biomedical Engineering

Dr.Horslen's research is focused on understanding how sensory information is used to control movement, particularly standing balance. He is interested in how balance-relevant muscle spindle, Golgi tendon organ, cutaneous and vestibular information is acquired and utilized to control balance, as well as how these processes are affected by context and/or disease. Horslen's postdoctoral work employs electrophysiological and biomechanical methods to explore how muscle spindles encode stretch information.
