The research of the Bayesian Behavior group shows that movement and movement learning can be understood in terms of statistical principles. Our Sensors (Eyes, Ears, Skin etc) are not perfect but are noisy. Moreover, our muscles are noisy and if we try to do the same movement over and over it will be different each time. This means that if we make a movement, say swing a golf club, we will have uncertainty in the potential movement outcomes. Our group studies how people make movement decisions in the presence of such uncertainty.
Our research has four main thrusts.
Our lab is part of Northwestern university, Departments Physiology and PM&R. It is associated with Northwestern Department of applied math. Our laboratory is part of the rehabilitation institute of Chicago.
At the moment, most of our research is discussed on our lab wiki: fair use. We must also be allowed to link freely to sites of interest and address freely our opinions.
