Topic: Understanding human movements

Neurobotics is a new field that lies at the intersection of Robotics and Neuroscience.  In Neurobotics, robotic models and environments are used to understand the neuromuscular control and biomechanics of human limbs.

In parallel, robotic systems are developed to augment, replace and rehabilitate damaged sensorimotor functions.  In this talk, a girl geek will talk about using a robotic tool to understand human level dexterity.
