Professor Eilon Vaadia is a leading authority on the brain, central nervous system and motor function.  His pioneering research combines electrophysiological, psychophysical, anatomical and theoretical approaches to sensory-motor integration, which spurs the body’s execution of involuntary movements. Professor Vaadia has spearheaded multidisciplinary research that led to the development of brain-machine interface studies, resulting in the revolutionary clinical application of a brain-driven motor prosthesis—or “robotic arm.”
