Joshua Aman

Assistant Professor


Dr. Aman's research focuses on examining neurophysiological and biomechanical markers and indications of movement disorders such as dystonia, Parkinson's disease, and essential tremor. That is, investigating the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms of movement disorders and quantifying how they manifest themselves through signs and symptoms. In parallel, his work also focuses on the mechanisms of action of deep brain stimulation (DBS) and its effects on neurophysiological processes and subsequent (motor and non-motor) behavioral changes.In addition to his research, Dr. Aman was trained in clinical neurophysiology by leading experts Dr. Jerrold Vitek MD, PhD and Dr. Scott Cooper MD, PhD on the interpretation of intraoperative neurophysiological brain activity, or "brain mapping". Dr. Aman provides support to the U of M neurosurgical team during DBS electrode implant surgeries by interpreting neurophysiological (brain) activity in order to determine the optimal location for implanting the electrode within targeted structures deep in the brain.
