The MCLab concentrates its research efforts on aspects of human movement control focusing on how the Central Nervous System (CNS) relates to muscles and the environment to elaborate the broad repertoire of motor skills we observe in our daily tasks. Our specific interests are concentrated, but not limited to the following aspects of human movement:
- Motor learning and re-learning;
- Multi-muscle and multi-joint coordination regarding to movement and posture control;
- Integration of sensory information to human movement;
- Mechanisms of fatigue
- Neurophysiology of postural control
Our investigations encompass the study of healthy citizens and those suffering from atypical development, neurological and orthopedic insults. Our scientific approach is based on the integration of several disciplines including neuroscience, biomechanics, physics, and rehabilitation medicine.
