Alvaro Costa Garcia

コスタ ガルシア アルバロ

ÁLvaro Costa García is a research scientist at the Intelligent Behavior Control Unit, BSI, RIKEN. He received M.S. degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the Systems Engineering and Automation Department at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche, Spain (2013). He obtained a PhD in the Program on Industrial and Telecommunications Technology from the same university in 2016. During the PhD, his research was focussed on lower limb rehabilitation methods and the study of cognitive mechanisms related to gait through the evaluation of electroencephalographic signals. Recently, he has started studying cortico-muscular coherences in order to develop more efficient neuro rehabilitation techniques.

Ningjia Yang


Ningjia Yang is a research scientist at the Intelligent Behavior Control Unit, CBS, RIKEN. She received her B.S. from Department of Automation at Nankai University (China) in 2014. She obtained her M.S. and Ph.D from Department of Precision Engineering, the University of Tokyo (Japan) in 2017 and 2020 respectively. During the Ph.D, her research focused on the stroke rehabilitation and developed a novel method to evaluate the stroke patients and estimate the stroke recovery based on muscle synergy. She worked as a research associate in Robotics and Rehabilitation Lab, Columbia University in 2018. Recently, she started studying the cortico-spinal-muscular motor pathway to develop new training and rehabilitation methods.

Shotaro Okajima

岡島 正太郎

Shotaro Okajima received MSc in mechanical Engineering from Mechanical Science and Engineering Department at Nagoya University, Japan (2016). Since 2021, he works as a researcher at Intelligent Behavior Control Unit. He mainly conducts motion measurement and analysis using surface electromyography(sEMG). He also works on analyzing the effects on muscles or movements due to neural or muscular activities that individuals cannot control by using sEMG. In addition, he not only uses sEMG to measure muscle activity, but also works on inferring neural activity based on sEMG.
