Congrats Dr. @JohnATL! 🦾


Join me in congratulating one of our most beloved community members, Dr. @JohnATL, who successfully passed his dissertation defense today!

He did a wonderful job explaining super complex history, theory, neuroscience, and the results of his research experiments and aims in “The Neurobehavioral Effects of Sensorimotor Dissonance During Observation and Execution with Upper-Extremity Prostheses.”

The audience was full of folks who know a LOT about those things and folks (like me) who know nothing about them, and he managed to keep us all engaged and feeling smarter for having done so.

Congrats, Dr. J!


Congratulations! A Ph.D. is an amazing achievement.
