Eling de Bruin
My research is focussed on the mechanical interaction with the environment (e.g., exerting a force on the environment in a specific direction), the use of perceptual information, the effects of specific movement parameters (e.g., speed, amplitude, and frequency) on the stability of patterns of coordinated movements, and the acquisition of perceptual-motor skills in learning. These topics are being studied in people of all ages and in people with specific (neurological) movement disorders.
