MTW seminar: "Linking neural activity to movement"

MTW seminar: “Linking neural activity to movement”

När: 09/03/2022 , 11:45 - 13:00

In this talk, Silvia Muceli will present the research activities of their new laboratory based at Chalmers, which are mainly focused on neural control of movement and neural interfacing.

The team uses functional magnetic resonance imaging, electromyography, and kinematics to study how the brain and spinal cord control movement. They apply novel electrode technology in animal and human experiments to investigate the activity of spinal motor neurons and how this neural activity can be linked to movement. They also study the coordination among the functional units that constitute a muscle (i.e., motor units) as well as among different muscles, and investigate sensorimotor development in infants. Silvia’s talk will present an overview of these activities.

Silvia Muceli is an Assistant Professor in Life Science Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. She received her master’s degree in Electronics Engineering from the University of Cagliari, Italy, and PhD in Biomedical Science and Engineering from Aalborg University, Denmark. She underwent postdoctoral research training at the University Medical Center Göttingen, Germany, and Imperial College London, UK.

The seminar will be online and held in English.
