Presidential Lecturer

Wilsaan M. Joiner, PhD
Professor and Chancellor’s Fellow, UC Davis

Department of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior, College of Biological Sciences

University of California, Davis 

Dr. Joiner studies how we use different sources of information to aid behavior, ranging from visual perception to movement planning and updating. Specifically, he is interested in how external and internally-generated sensory information is integrated in healthy individuals, in comparison to certain disease and impaired populations (e.g., Schizophrenia and upper extremity amputees). Achieving this understanding may lead to better methods for diagnosing and treating impairments of the nervous system.”
