M.S. in Kinesiology: Emphasis in Motor Neuroscience
Motor Neurosciences prepares students for teaching and research careers in motor behavior.
Laboratories support the motor behavior programs with emphases in Motor Control, Motor Learning and Child Movement. These laboratories provide the most modern facilities and use technologies that allow online data collection and processing, sophisticated presentation of auditory and visual stimuli, as well as the opportunity to use human and animal research models.
In addition to work conducted in the laboratories, supplemental experiences are available in:
- Electrical engineering (robotics),
- Computer science (artificial intelligence),
- Industrial engineering (human factors), and
The M.S. in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Motor Neuroscience (Motor Behavior), provides advanced training with an emphasis on research. This program is experimentally oriented and is specifically designed to provide students with a thorough foundation in the theoretical processes that assist the performance and learning of perceptual motor skills.
