Biography

Wilsaan Joiner’s Sensorimotor Integration Laboratory at the Volgenau School of Engineering conducts translational research investigating human sensory integration, motor learning and control using computational and experimental approaches. Ongoing projects include the influence of eye movements and internal monitoring signals in guiding goal-directed movements and the neural processes underlying motor adaptation and memory consolidation. In addition, there are ongoing collaborative research projects with laboratories at the National Eye Institute, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and Harvard University. Joiner pulls from his extensive experience as he teaches physiology to bioengineering majors. He is also affiliated with the Neuroscience program, as many of his research subjects contain interdisciplinary aspects.
