Integrating neuroscience and biomechanics: the neuromechanics of motor coordination in humans and other animals

Abstract

Humans and other animals have a remarkable agility which allows them to navigate complex environments with grace. This motor dexterity is still poorly understood scientifically. We believe the reason for this is that motor coordination cannot be understood by studying the nervous system in isolation. Indeed, the biomechanical properties of the human or animal body have a key role in shaping the motor pattern. This workshop brings together researchers working at the interface of experimental biomechanics and computational neuroscience. Its purpose is to discuss the insights that can be gained into neural function by investigating the integration of neural control with musculoskeletal biomechanics.
