Steven C. Cramer

Steven C. Cramer received the B.A. degree in Neurobiology from the University of California, Berkeley, earning Highest Honors (1980-1983). He then received an MD from University of Southern California (1984-1988) in Los Angeles, CA. This was followed by a residency in internal medicine at UCLA (1988-1991); and a residency in neurology (1992-1995) plus a fellowship in cerebrovascular disease (1995-1997) at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA. He also earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Investigation from Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA (1995-1997). He worked as an Assistant Professor in the department of Neurology at the University of Washington (1997-2002), after which he moved to the University of California, Irvine, where he is now a Professor of Neurology, Anatomy & Neurobiology, and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. He is also the Vice Chair for Research in Neurology, the Clinical Director of the Stem Cell Research Center, and the Associate Director of the UC Irvine Institute for Clinical & Translational Science. His research publications have largely been focused on brain repair after central nervous system injury in humans, with an emphasis on stroke and recovery of movement. Dr. Cramer is a member of the American Neurological Association, American Academy of Neurology, and the American Stroke Association.

Movement Anticipation and EEG: Implications for BCI-Contingent Robot Therapy
Brain-computer interfacing is a technology that has the potential to improve patient engagement in robot-assisted rehabilitation therapy. For example, movement intention reduces mu (8-13 Hz) oscillation amplitude over the sensorimotor cortex, a phenomenon referred to as event-related desynchronization (ERD). In... Read more
