Neuromechanics (NM)

This concentration combines the disciplines of "neuroscience" and "biomechanics" and deals with study of human movements accomplished by the interaction of the nervous, muscular and skeletal systems of the human body. Students learn concepts of neuromechanical basis of kinesiology in the development, learning, control and production of human movement. The neuromechanical concentration curriculum focuses on a comprehensive biomechanical, neuromuscular, motor learning and performance analysis of human movement. The enhances the knowledge and understanding of neural, biomechanical, cognitive and behavioral mechanisms underlying human movements, to help improve performance and prevent injuries in a variety of populations ranging from recreational, athletic, occupational, geriatric and special populations such as Downs' syndrome, autism and Parkinson's' disease. The curriculum provides students, a foundation in the mechanisms underlying human movement to prepare students for careers in physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine/physician assistance, neuromechanics, human factors ergonomics, sport science, disability and rehabilitation science.
