We hosted Mr. MacDougall's fifth grade class from St. Pius X for a session of muscle music and other neuroscience experiments.
This is the webpage for the Human Neurophysiology Laboratory in the
Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of
The laboratory focuses on understanding how the nervous system
controls human movement. We are interested in how feedback from sensory
receptors located in muscle, joints and the skin contribute to the
control of movements of the arms and legs. We also study how to use
electrical stimulation to generate contractions of human muscle.
The goal of the work is to lead to a better understanding of how
signals from sensory receptors and the brain are involved in the neural
control of human movement and to use this information for the
development of rehabilitation strategies for people with movement
