Nonlinear
Biodynamics Lab

LAB DIRECTOR
Jonathan B. Dingwell

The Nonlinear Biodynamics laboratory is dedicated to understanding the biomechanics and neuromuscular control processes that underlie complex adaptive human movements.
We are interested in examining both basic science and clinically relevant questions related to issues such as:

  • Maintaining dynamic stability during walking
  • Motor coordination during fatigue, repetitive stress injuries, and complex skill learning
  • Understanding the role of neuronal noise in movement coordination

We address these questions using a variety of experimental and modeling approaches that are primarily derived from the analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems.
