What moves people

Café Scientifique will be held on September 19, 2018 on the interaction of nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord and muscles

Freiburg, Sep 11, 2018

Grabbing a glass of water: what can be so complicated? And yet the control of movements is a big mystery to neuroscientists. They want to understand how nerve cells in the brain control movements. Using methods that record the electrical activity of nerve cells, the nerve connections between the brain, spinal cord and muscles can be studied more and more accurately. Dr. Christian Leukel, junior professor of neuroscience in sports, explains how he explores what makes people move.
