Konczak lab publishes in Experimental Brain Research

SarahHirsiger.jpgJuergen.jpgA research focus of the Human Sensorimotor Control Laboratory is to understand how the human brain combines sensory information about objects and how such information is transformed into motor commands that are used to manipulate such objects. Sarah Hirsiger, a former master's student from Switzerland, and Kristen Pickett, now a postdoc at Washington University in St. Louis, investigated how simple cues for weight and size of an object are processed and how it affects hand motor control. The results are summarized in a new paper to appear in the journal of Experimental Brain Research. Ms. Hirsiger is the lead author and Jürgen Konczak is the senior author on the paper. Ms. Hirsiger is now a doctoral student at the Normal Aging and Plasticity Imaging Center of the University of Zürich.
