Revealing how the human brain coordinates body movements for applications in health and technology (2012–2018)

Abstract:
A better understanding of how the human brain represents the world and regulates our interactions with it is central to improving rehabilitation programs to restore function after injury, and to the design of interfaces between humans and machines. This project will provide basic information about brain control of movement that, through international links, will guide the development of interfaces between electronic devices and the nervous system to restore function in people with neurological problems. By revealing the principles of how the brain adapts our movements in response to new environmental conditions, the proposed work will directly inform strategies for rehabilitation and skill acquisition in industry and health.
