Daniel Corcos obtained his Ph.D. (1982) in Motor
Control from the University of Oregon after obtaining
his Master's Degree in Psychology in l980. He
did a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Department
of Neurosurgery at Rush Medical Center from l983-l987.
Dr. Corcos was an Assistant Professor at the University
of Illinois at Chicago from l987-l993, was promoted
to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure
in l993, and to Full Professor in l997. He is
also a Professor of Bioengineering, Physical Therapy
and Neurology. From 1994-1995 he was a visiting
research scientist at the Institute of Neurology
in London. He was selected for membership in the
American Academy of Kinesiology and Physical Education
in 2001. He has been involved in teaching 4th
grade children neuroscience through the Global
Village program in Oak Park. He has served on
NIH study sections since 1994 and was the Chair
of the Musculoskeletal and Rehabilitation Sciences
Study Section at NIH from 2003 until 2006. He
was the Executive Editor of the Journal of Motor
Behavior from 1996 to 2004 and is currently the
Editor for Rapid Communications. He is also on
the Editorial Board for the Journal
of Neuroengineering and Rehabilitation.
Professor Corcos is currently conducting research
into the motor deficits associated with Parkinson's
disease. He is also interested in how different
neurosurgical interventions facilitate the control
of movement in Parkinson's disease.
