University of Louisville（アメリカ）
Assistant professor – David M. Rouffet was my supervisor, who leads the Human Locomotion and Movement Performance Core (HLMP) at the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center in the Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Louisville. The HLMP develops a comprehensive analysis of functional movements involving the lower limbs, trunk and upper limbs in individuals with spinal cord injuries. Currently, the HLMP group is investigating on using transcutaneous electrical stimulation of the cervical spinal cord to improve upper extremity function in a quadriplegic individual.
During the three-month internship at the University of Louisville, the main work I was doing and the activities I attended are listed as following. 1) Helped to fix experiment data by using software Cortex; 2) Calculated spine intersegmental angular kinematics when a spinal cord injury patient’s 11th thoracic vertebrae was applied transcutaneous electrical stimulation; 3) Learned some new software – Cortex, Visual 3D, Python, MATLAB. Basically, I performed my three-month internship in a planned way.
