Human spatial orientation; posture and balance; movement control and coordination; sensory-motor adaptation; motor development; multi-sensory interactions; space perception; space flight physiology; human factors in virtual environments; motion sickness.
We investigate basic biomechanical, physiological and psychological mechanisms of human motor control and spatial orientation. Practical applications of interest include development of motor control and posture across the lifespan, disorders of movement in autism, vestibular loss and other clinical conditions, and predicting and circumventing degradation of perception and performance in unusual force environments.
