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:

  1. Development of the kinematics and kinetics of grasping in healthy children and in motor disorders
  2. Observing cognitive processing through the decomposition of arm movements
  3. Adaptation of motor control models to describe grasping and arm movements in motor disorders.
