Arm movements

Studying the brain activity associated with specific movements is fundamental, not only for a better understanding of the brain-movement relation but also to shed light on quanti-qualitative characteristics of the movement.

Research in the field of cognitive and movement neuroscience has shown that the electrical activity of the brain associated with performing coordinated rhythmic movements changes depending on the quanti-qualitative characteristics of the movement itself, such as speed, direction in space, and rhythmicity. For example: performing complex upper limb coordination movements requires greater brain activation and involves more areas of the brain than performing simpler movements.

Currently, the research activity is focused on the study of the cortical electrical activity that characterizes the execution of rhythmic and coordinated movements of the upper limbs in various directions on the sagittal axis.
