MOVI-LAB

The Human Movement Research Laboratory (MOVI-LAB) was created in 2015 and belongs to School of Sciences – Department of Physical Education at São Paulo State Universty (UNESP) –  Campus Bauru – Brazil. The main aim of MOVI-LAB is to understand neuromotor mechanisms underlying how human movements are planned and controlled. Our research’s approach consists of a combination of experimental and clinical studies aimed at unraveling the interplay between organismic, task-related, and environmental constraints examining human movement in neurologically healthy individuals and people with neurodegenerative diseases. The MOVI-LAB has established intensive and fruitful collaborations with important national and international scientific centers, which serves the purpose of better covering the multi-disciplinary nature of human movement issues and promoting continuous exchanging between theory and practice. It has received several awards/grants at Brazilian and International Agencies and has been supported by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), Coordination of Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES), Fulbright Scholar Program (FULBRIGHT) and UNESP Foundation (FUNDUNESP).
