Santosh Chandrasekaran is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Santosh received his PhD from Carnegie Mellon University in 2015. His research involved automated quantifying of synaptic plasticity in the sensory cortex of mice, using image analysis and machine learning techniques. His current area of research includes the restoration of sensation in amputees through epidural stimulation of dorsal spinal cord and rootlets. His research explores ways to study acceptance and the ease of use of prostheses when sensory feedback is provided.
Research Interest Summary
