Neuromotor Physiology Lab

Areas of Investigation 

The Laboratory of Neuromotor Physiology studies the pathophysiology of movement and sensorimotor coordination, and their application for the development of new rehabilitation protocols. Diverse approaches such as multisensory integration searches, psychophysics of perception of gravitational movements, control of eye movements, interlimb coordination, muscle synergies, and locomotor rhythms are considered for the generation of voluntary movement. The different approaches are applied to the study of patients both in the pediatric and adult phase suffering from sensory-motor disturbances.
