Research Interests

Matt Williams’ research is focussed on designing cutting-edge microelectrode arrays (MEA’s) for minimally-invasive detection and analysis of motor-unit action potentials, the smallest unit of neuromuscular control. Matt uses these devices to understand the neural coding underlying skilled movements by implementing them in a skilled forelimb task in awake, (mostly) behaving mice.
