Andrew Fuglevand uses experimental and modeling approaches to understand how the mammalian nervous system controls skeletal muscles to produce coordinated movements. Recent experiments focus on restoration of movement and sensation in paralyzed individuals. Fuglevand was the 2006 recipient of the Delsys Prize for innovation in electromyography. He has served as a permanent member of the Musculoskeletal and Rehabilitation Sciences study section for NIH and associate editor the "Journal of Neurophysiology and Neuroscience Letters."
