Abstract: When manipulating objects, humans begin adjusting their grip force to friction within 100 ms of contact. During motor adaptation, subjects become aware of the slipperiness of touched surfaces. Previously, we have demonstrated that humans cannot perceive frictional differences when surfaces are brought in contact with an immobilised...

During human motor control, sensory information is integrated, and the influence of each cue depends on its variance. Sensory weighting within the proprioceptive system, specifically between force and position feedback, including its stiffness dependency, has been demonstrated for the shoulder and digits. Both studies encompass upper limb joints...

Biological systems, including human beings, have the innate ability to perform complex tasks in a versatile and agile manner. Researchers in sensorimotor control have aimed to comprehend and formally define this innate characteristic. The idea, supported by several experimental findings, that biological systems are able to combine and adapt...

Human hands are complex biomechanical systems that allow for dexterous tasks with many degrees of freedom. Coordination of the fingers is essential for many activities of daily living and involves integrating sensory signals. During this sensory integration, the central nervous system deals with the uncertainty of sensory signals. When...

To offer engaging neurorehabilitation training to neurologic patients, motor tasks are often visualized in virtual reality (VR). Recently introduced head-mounted displays (HMDs) allow to realistically mimic the body of the user from a first-person perspective (i.e., avatar) in a highly immersive VR environment. In this immersive environment,...

Assessing the stability of biological system models has aided in uncovering a plethora of new insights in genetics, neuroscience, and medicine. In this paper, we focus on analyzing the stability of neurological signals, including electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. Interestingly, spatiotemporal discrete-time linear fractional-order systems ...

Background: Gait adaptability is of utmost importance for keeping balance during gait in patients with knee osteoarthritis, also after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The aims of this explorative study are: (1) assess the effect of age, knee osteoarthritis and TKA on gait adaptability; (2) assess changes in gait adaptability pre-to post-TKA...

BACKGROUND: Current robot-aided training allows for high-intensity training but might hamper the transfer of learned skills to real daily tasks. Many of these tasks, e.g., carrying a cup of coffee, require manipulating objects with complex dynamics. Thus, the absence of somatosensory information regarding the interaction with virtual objects...

Conventional steering systems in passenger vehicles have a mechanically fixed steering ratio. The steering sensitivity, defined as the amount of vehicle response to the driver's steering wheel input, remains fixed with changing road environments. Research has shown that driving comfort and safety can be improved when the vehicle's steering...

Accurate and swift tuning of joint impedance is crucial to perform movement and interaction with our environment. Time-varying system identification enables quantification of joint impedance during movement. Many methods have been developed over the years, each with their own mathematical approach and underlying assumptions. Yet, for the...

The need for users’ safety and technology acceptability has incredibly increased with the deployment of co-bots physically interacting with humans in industrial settings, and for people assistance. A well-studied approach to meet these requirements is to ensure human-like robot motions and interactions. In this manuscript, we present a...

The synergy between musculoskeletal and central nervous systems empowers humans to achieve a high level of motor performance, which is still unmatched in bio-inspired robotic systems. Literature already presents a wide range of robots that mimic the human body. However, under a control point of view, substantial advancements are still needed...

Electroencephalography (EEG) source localization has been applied in the development of braincomputer interfaces to control hand prostheses. When performing fine movements, our brain uses sensory feedback regarding position, velocity, and force to improve performance. Understanding the cortical mechanisms underlying individual finger movements...

Human beings can achieve a high level of motor performance that is still unmatched in robotic systems. These capabilities can be ascribed to two main enabling factors: (i) the physical proprieties of human musculoskeletal system, and (ii) the effectiveness of the control operated by the central nervous system. Regarding point (i), the...

Reflexes and co-contraction are the two mechanisms used for effective limb control when humans face unexpected perturbations in their daily activities. When the environment has reduced stability margins, reflexes are tempered due to the oscillations caused by the neural time delay of the reflexive pathways. An explanation is that reflexes adapt...

The motivation behind this research topic was to cut across conventional boundaries that separate movement neuroscience, biomechanics, and robotics. The aim was to underscore that brain and body collaborate to produce behavior in biological organisms. While this is a simple idea, compartmentalization in education and science has often...

Background: Children with cerebral palsy (CP) often show impaired selective motor control (SMC) that induces limitations in motor function. Children with CP can improve aspects of pathological gait in an immediate response to visual biofeedback. It is not known, however, how these gait adaptations are achieved at the neural level, nor do we...

Joint impedance describes the dynamic resistance of a joint in response to position perturbations. Joint impedance is known to vary nonlinearly during movement caused by varying joint angle and muscle activation. The nonlinear behaviour can be described using linear time-varying models under certain assumption. Recently a number of time-varying...
