Scientific Career

In our research, we strive to understand the rules and laws of human movement and the associated neural mechanisms. We study young and elderly healthy individuals, athletes, as well as individuals with damage to the central neural system. We employ methods to capture and analyze movements and forces, and to measure and stimulate brain activity. We also develop new approaches in neurorehabilitation.
