Research at the Chair of Movement Science focuses on understanding human sensorimotor control and motor learning with an emphasis on the underlying neural mechanisms. The interest spans a variety of motor acts from elementary motor skills during object manipulation, complex tool use actions, as well as high performance in sports. While the research broadly covers motor behavior changes over the lifespan, a particular emphasis is placed on the changes associated with neurological diseases such as dementia or stroke. Along these lines, the research aims to improve the understanding of human motor control and the effect of interventions in different fields such as prevention, rehabilitation, and high-performance sports.
In the line of work of imec, TUM will coordinate studies both in the lab and field with the aim of developing an assessment tool for detecting frailty in activities of daily living using the LOLA app on a wrist-worn sensor.
TUM will also co-coordinate the multicenter pilot study, lead by MADoPA.
