Seyed Yahya Shirazi, Ph.D.
I am a Postdoc Scientist at the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience (SCCN), Institue for Neural Computation (INC), University of California, San Diego. My research at SCCN entails mobile brain/body imaging (MoBI) and supporting EEGLAB with advanced computational source imaging.
Until recenlty, I was a Postdoctoral Scientist at the New York University (NYU). I worked on corticomuscular connectivity during lower-limb motor tasks using high-denisty EEG and high-density EMG to understand how the brain function improves with rehabilitation after stroke and other impairments.
I got my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2021. My doctoral research was at the intersection of neuroscience and biomechanics of movement. Specifically, I studied human neuromuscular (i.e., brain and muscle) responses to the mechanical perturbations during exercise and locomotion.
Before joining UCF, I studied Biomedical Engineering - Biomechanics for both Masters and Undergraduate at Tehran Polytechnic. My Master's thesis was about the postural stability of lower-limb amputees experiencing perturbations when they were standing.
