participate in a study

The Biomechanics, Rehabilitation, and Interdisciplinary Neuroscience (BRaIN) Lab at the University of Central Florida (UCF) is looking for volunteers ages 18-35 years old and 60-85 years old to take part in a study about movement adaptation and balance control during walking. The experiment involves walking on a treadmill as we record your brain activity, muscle activity, and body movements. Minimal compensation is provided. For more information, please email Dr. Huang, hjhuang@ucf.edu.

The Biomechanics, Rehabilitation, and Interdisciplinary Neuroscience (BRaIN) Lab at the University of Central Florida (UCF) is looking for volunteers ages 18-35 years old and 60-85 years old to take part in a study to determine how electrical brain activity during walking changes with advancing age. The experiment involves walking on a treadmill with a range of speeds and slopes as we record your brain activity, muscle activity, and body movements. Minimal compensation is provided. For more information, please email Dr. Huang, hjhuang@ucf.edu.

join the team

We are NOT taking new PhD students for Fall 2021. 

We will likely be seeking 1 Ph.D. student to join us in Fall 2022 with a strong interest in machine learning and electroencephalography (EEG). The student needs to be able to get into the Mechanical Engineering Ph.D. program but will most likely have the option to switch to a Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. program. Information on UCF ME PhD program.  Information on UCF graduate fellowships. The student must also be qualified to be a teaching assistant for core Mechanical Engineering classes such as dynamics and solid mechanics.

Required skills: Matlab and/or Python

Preferred skills: EEGLAB; experience with neuromechanics equipment and analyses (electroencephalography (EEG); motion capture; electromyography (EMG); inertial measuring units (IMUs); expired gas analysis; eye tracker); phone app development; mechatronics

We have openings for 1-2 Mechanical Engineering or Biomedical Engineering M.S. students interested in device/sensor development and data analyses. Preference will be given to students seeking to pursue a thesis.

Preferred skills: Matlab and/or Python; EEGLAB; experience with neuromechanics equipment and analyses (electroencephalography (EEG); motion capture; electromyography (EMG); inertial measuring units (IMUs); expired gas analysis; eye tracker); phone app development; mechatronics

We have several opportunities for undergraduates to help in the lab with data collections and potentially data analyses for those with programming (primarily MATLAB and Python) skills. Students will need to complete CITI training before being able to help with human subject data collections. Students must also be able to commit to helping in the lab for at least 1 year and be able to come in for 2-3 hour blocks for 2-3 days a week.

How to find the lab once you are inside the building: From the main lobby, take the first hallway on the right. You will pass by the vending machines. Go through the door and you will see some mailboxes in front of you. The lab doors will be to your right, by the mailboxes.
