Intersectional Research Projects

In research projects with more than one section you can additionally select the category »Intersectional Research«. These projects are automatically listed chronologically on this post.

Move-Age

Understanding Ageing and Mobility. Funded by the EU as part of the Erasmus Mundus program, this international training network involves 40-odd PhD students studying age-related changes in human movement.

4D-EEG

Assessing Arm Function Recovery Post-Stroke. Goal of this EU-funded 4D-EEG project is to develop innovative methods for accurate localization of brain activity patterns and quantification of the interactions between multiple brain areas.

Network #1

Excerpts are an important basis for users to decide which article is worth reading. It is particularly useful to provide your audience with a short well-written abstract to showcase your content. The manual entry of an excerpt is optional. If you decide not to supply a hand-crafted text, leave the excerpt field blank. Then an auto generated excerpt will be displayed instead that will take the first 55 words to be found within your article.

Neuromechanical responses to stroke in the rat

The aim of this project is to improve our understanding of the changes in neural control of movement and secondary changes in skeletal muscle properties in response to a stroke.

Force transmission within the Achilles tendon

The aim of this project is to investigate the distribution of deformation within the Achilles tendon and its mechanical consequences.

Unravelling the etiology of muscle injuries

The first aim of the research project is to characterize the activity of the hamstring muscles biomechanically and neurophsyiologically, during high speed running activities and injury prevention exercises. The second aim is to study muscle characteristics in athletes before and after a prevention program.

Musculoskeletal system

We study the function of muscles as mechanical and sensory organs, with a specific focus on the effects of tendinous and myofascial connections on mechanical output and sensory afference. In addition, we study the mechanical function and the tolerance to mechanical loading of joints with a specific focus on the intervertebral joints.

Locomotion

We study the mechanics and energetics of walking and running, with a focus on stability, i.e., our ability not to fall during these tasks. We study what sensory information and motor strategies are used and how these are affected by injury, ageing and disease, but also by training.
