The BAS lab examines how humans control movements and learn movement skills. Our research uses a multidisciplinary combination of behavioural experiments, non-invasive brain stimulation, and neuroimaging techniques.

Topics of particular interest to the lab include:

  • How we learn and automate movements through extensive practice
  • Addressing the adverse effects of ageing and stroke on movement control
  • Understanding how imagining actions, and observing the actions of others, affects our movement system.

Our research has been supported by grants from the FNRS, the FRS, the Wellcome Trust, the ERC Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships, and the Experimental Psychology Society.
