MOVCENTR: Creating an infrastructure and expertise to explore the mechanisms of human movement.
The Principal Investigator's (Dr. Nick Stergiou) research team focuses on furthering the science of quantitatively assessing human behavior. This team is focusing on understanding how concepts and methods drawn from the scientific study of complex dynamical systems (i.e. systems with very many interacting parts) can be employed to understand pathology in human behavior, and to motivate the development of therapeutic interventions and assistive devices.
Four new faculty members were hired in 2016-2017, Drs. Brian Knarr, Jorge Zuniga, Philippe Malcolm and Nate Hunt. All four faculty became collaborators of the Center. Dr. Knarr has since began a research project on the grant.
Six research projects are being carried out under the Center umbrella. These projects address different motor related disorders and are led by junior investigators. The expertise of these junior investigators spans the continuum from engineering to physical therapy.
