Mark Latash

Time: 
Friday, February 20, 2015 - 10:15 AM to 11:15 AM
Location: 
Room 1103 Bioscience Research Building

My field of interest is motor control defined as an area of natural science exploring how the nervous system interacts with other body parts and the environment to produce purposeful, coordinated actions. In particular, I have been involved in the development of the equilibrium-point hypothesis and uncontrolled manifold hypothesis using experimental studies of motor coordination during standing, stepping, reaching, and multi-digit (pressing and prehensile) tasks. I have also been interested in changes in motor control and coordination with healthy aging, atypical development, practice, and a range of neurological disorders.
