Presentation AbstractHow do we 'keep a rhythm'? How does interacting with someone else changes our own movements? How does gait and cognition change over time in people with Parkinson's disease? This talk will focus on the results emerging from my research team in the past four years. Topics will range from fundamental cognitive & behavioral neuroscience questions to translational research through the lens of complexity theory and social motor coordination.
About Dr. Marmelat
Dr. Vivien Marmelat is an assistant professor in the Department of Biomechanics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Dr. Marmelat received his PhD in Human Movement Science from the VU University Amsterdam (Netherlands) and from Montpellier University (France) in 2014. His research explores 1) the effect of auditory rhythms on brain activity and movement rhythmicity; 2) the neuromechanisms underlying locomotor control, and the effect of attention on gait, in particular in people with Parkinson's disease; and 3) the effect of inter-personal coordination on brain and movement dynamics.
