BIOENG-404

Lecturer(s) :

Aminian Kamiar
Courtine Grégoire
Ijspeert Auke

Language:

English

Summary

The lecture presents an overview of the state of the art in the analysis and modeling of human locomotion and the underlying motor circuits. Multiple aspects are considered including neurophysiology, gait characterization, biomechanics, numerical modeling, neuroprosthetics, and links to biped robots
