Eventhough, drawing, handwriting, grasping, and pointing are tasks that individuals usually perform seemingly effortless, these tasks are very complex.

The Fine Motor Control and Learning laboratory focuses on how we are able to perform and (re)learn these fine motor tasks when the control of movements is challenged by an increase of demands due to (cognitive / environmental / physiologic) stress and/or the motor system is confronted with physiologic deterioration as result of advanced age and/or neurological disease.
