Neural optimisation of movement

From :   to

The goal is to study the mechanisms underlying movement optimisation, i.e. the integration of the gravitational forces into the arm motor commands


We will investigate how sensory information (e.g. visual, vestibular, proprioceptive) is used by the brain during the planning stage of arm movements to build motor commands that take into account the gravitational forces. The study is part of a project funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR, 2023-2027), for which we have already obtained PhD funding. The M2 internship could therefore open up opportunities for doctoral studies, starting next year. The studies will involve a variety of techniques that could be acquired during the internship (e.g. kinematics, electromyography, electroencephalography, virtual reality). The internship will be carried out in Marseille, under the supervision of Jean Blouin (DR CNRS) in the Neural Bases of Sensorimotor Behavior team from the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, CNRS/Aix-Marseille University.
