Site : Carreire

Team:
Coordinations and Plasticities of Spinal Generators

Domain:
Motor Systems / Control of posture and movement / Human locomotion

Research axis:

  • Normal and pathologic locomotion and motor activities: interlimb coordination
  • Posture: multi-sensorial integration in human balance

Scientific expertise:

  • Biomechanics
  • Kinematics
  • Kinetics
  • Electromyography
  • Automated quantified walk in human

Projects:

  • Studying motor strategies in motor activities such as locomotion or sit-to-stand task.
  • Determining the role of sensorial information in the circling behavior during locomotion without visual landmarks
