Research topic: Understanding the strategies used by the brain to control movement, in healthy people and individuals with motor disorders, with a focus on modeling movements and forces of the hand and fingers.
Research methods: Behavioral recordings from human subjects: motion capture, force measurements, EMG; computational modeling.
Projects in the lab include:
- Development of the kinematics and kinetics of grasping in healthy children and in motor disorders
- Observing cognitive processing through the decomposition of arm movements
- Adaptation of motor control models to describe grasping and arm movements in motor disorders.
