Research Interests
Dr. Robinson’s research interests are focused on combining the development of micro- and nano-devices capable of measuring stroke sequences with fundamental research that characterizes the behavior of the nervous system, quantification of tremor through signal processing analysis of graphical drawings, and determining and describing the control systems employed in health and disease to permit upright standing in humans.
