The main research fields of our group are motor learning and motor control. Our aim is to find ways to facilitate the learning process of new movements and to optimize the learning rate or the performance. For this purpose, experiment participants are executing different motor exercises like postural control movements and force or accuracy tasks. A special focus is set to the understanding of “how” and “where” in the neural system the learning or the adaptation process of motor control takes place. In our laboratories, we examine the underlying corticoneural mechanisms in motor control with several neurophysiological and imaging techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS).
