Human movements are - from the perspective of movement science - the result of a coordinative use of the skeletal musculature under the given physical conditions. This means that two aspects play an important role: the musculature and neuronal control.
Movement science at the RUB researches this interplay and the interaction between the nervous system and the biomechanics of the musculature - in short: the neuromuscular functioning of humans - in the context of (sporting) movement. The aim is to derive sound diagnostics and interventions from this.
Research in movement science is interdisciplinary and uses a wide range of methods, for example
