Chair of Human Movement Science

Research at the Chair of Human Movement Science is devoted to the understanding of human sensorimotor control and associated neural mechanism. Major topics are

  • Analysis of motor behavior from elementary abilities to complex skills,
  • Consequences of disturbances of the central nervous systems and neurorehabilitation,
  • Development over the lifespan and interventions,
  • Sports performance and optimization.

We employ methods to capture and analyze human movements and forces as well as neuroimaging and brain stimulation methods and new technologies in rehabilitation.
