Robert Gaunt, PhD

Society of Neuroscience Society for the Neural Control of Movement Brain-Computer Interface Society

Profile:

Robert Gaunt, PhD, joined the department as a Research Assistant Professor after completing post-doctoral training in PM&R's Rehab Neural Engineering Lab in 2010. He was promoted to Assistant Professor in 2014 and also continues to maintain a secondary appointment with the Department of Bioengineering.

Dr. Gaunt’s primary research interests are in the area of sensorimotor control and the development of neuroprosthetic devices. He works on developing methods to restore and improve bladder function using electrical stimulation of the spinal cord and peripheral nerves and on interfaces with the spinal cord and brain to monitor natural sensory activity and generate artificial sensations. These technologies will enable advanced neuroprosthetic devices with sensory capabilities.
