Moving forward: developing multi-method experimental approaches to investigate human locomotion in real life to support lifelong self-dependent living 

09th & 16th June 2021

Locomotion represents a fundamental motor skill and is an essential part of human everyday activities and has, thus, been in the focus of scientific interest in various fields of research and application: from motor development to movement rehabilitation, from joint action to brain-computer-interfaces. Similarly, motor control processes related to human locomotion have been investigated at different levels of the human motor system, including, among others, neural activity related to gait, inter-joint coordination of lower extremities, and interpersonal coordination processes. Despite this, interdisciplinary assessments of complex human locomotor behavior in ecologically valid, i.e., real-world conditions are still rare. 

This workshop aims at bringing together research groups from Lower Saxony and Scotland, who are interested in interdisciplinary, multi-method experimental approaches to study human locomotion and social interaction in real-world settings.
