Description

We are located in Room 211A within the Corbett Building on the UW campus. The laboratory includes a curtained data collection area and an office area. We are using perception-action approach to study human perceptual-motor learning, control and development. The major pieces of laboratory equipment include: 

 Fastec Cameras

Go Pro Cameras

Two Fastec Imaging SportsCam High Speed Cameras for 2D motion capture purpose

Two GoPro Hero 4 Black Ultra HD cameras, allowing high-definition motion capture

 Ascension 3D cameras

Ascension 3D Guidance TrakSTAR magnetic motion tracking system

 Wacom pen tablet

Wacom Intuos3 Pen Tablet with Neuroscript MovAlyeR 6.0 for tapping handwriting movement analysis

 Delsys myomonitor

Delsys Myomonitor EMG system with 8-channel capability

 Throwing Board

Custom-made adjustable target throwing board

 

Software

E-Prime / Matlab / SPSS

We also share lab space with Biomechanics Laboratory, in Room 160 in the same building, where we have access to the Vicon cameras and software for 3D motion capture purpose.

Research Focus

  • Understanding the process of learning (or re-learning) perceptual-motor skills
  • Investigating the control mechanisms for functional movements
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of training methods for teaching, coaching or rehabilitation
