Spinal Cord and Motor Control

Principal Investigators: Elzbieta Jankowska och Ingela Hammar

The research of Jankowska and Hammar concern the organization of spinal neurones and their contribution to reflexes and voluntary movements. The projects aim towards understanding the function of neuronal circuits integrating reflex actions with centrally initiated movements and the role of feedback information to the cerebellum in order to correct errors in motor behaviour. The research group uses a number of experimental approaches including electrophysiological techniques combined with imaging techniques.

Principal Investigator: Lars-Gunnar Pettersson

Pettersson investigates mechanisms for rehabilitation of voluntary movements following partial spinal cord lesions at the cervical level. The control of reaching movements and the recovery of grip function including the temporal coupling between arm- and eye movements are analyzed using high speed video recordings together with electrophysiology and movement detection analysis systems.
