Neuromechanics is the study of the interactions between the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system that lead to coordinated movements. We study neuromechanical influences on muscle coordination during balance and locomotion. We are developing experiments and computational models to understand spatial and temporal features of muscle coordination. We use techniques from neuroscience, biomechanics, kinesiology, signal processing, control systems, physiology, and image processing. This work will allow us to better characterize and model normal and impaired performance of fundamental motor tasks. Our findings influence the development of rehabilitation techniques, neural prosthetics, and neural tissue engineering to improve motor function.

  1. Dr Ting,
    On behalf of Project Walk Atlanta spinal cord injury recovery. Id like to get involved with this work. Im a newly accepted PhD student via distance learning in Health and Human Performance; I be focusing on neuromuscular responses to exercise in those living with spinal cord injury.
