Dr Danny Spampinato

Danny graduated from the University of California Irvine with a B.S. with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and subsequently earned his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins Medical Institute. His thesis work was guided by Dr. Pablo Celnik, where his topic was in understanding the physiological mechanisms underlying motor skill learning by utilizing a variety of behavioral tools and non-invasive brain stimulation techniques. He is now a Post-Doctoral fellow under the mentorship of John Rothwell working on a variety of research topics related to motor control, motor learning and retention, and neurophysiology in healthy young adults that can be utilized to develop interventions that promote motor learning in people recovering from neurological illness or injury.

 

Danny will be speaking at the upcoming Brainbox Initiative Conference 2019.
