Our mission is to provide a new understanding of the dynamical aspects of human movement via multidisciplinary approaches. In particular, we aim to achieve the following specific objectives:
- Quantitatively characterize the complex behavior in healthy and abnormal movement patterns via innovative analyses.
- Educate and train students, clinicians and basic scientists, so that they may apply concepts of human movement variability in their careers as educators and researchers.
- Improve our understanding of basic healthy and abnormal movement patterns using an interdisciplinary approach in clinically oriented research.
- Develop new diagnostic and prognostic tests and related biotechnology for a variety of movement disorders and aging.
To meet these goals, the laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and testing devices. Please see the facilities page for more information.
