Dr. Bertucco is primarily interested to conduct research in the areas of motor control, motor learning and neuromechanics. His overall approach is to combine neurological, engineering and computational principles to understand the basis of human movement and how central nervous system controls voluntary movements and acquires gross and fine motor skills. Currently, his research is focused on understanding the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms of postural control and locomotion, and its development in adulthood and childhood with particular attention to pediatric movement disorders.

Skills
Topic Description Research area
Biomechanics Biomechanics is concerned with the mechanical / anatomical bases of human movement. An interdisciplinary approach is used in which materials from anatomy, physiology and physics (mechanics) are integrated. Sport Sciences - Sport Sciences
Motor Control and Learning Motor control refers to the process by which the nervous system coordinates the muscle and limbs to achieve a desired movement or set of actions. Motor learning refers to the neurophysiological processes related to the acquisition and retention of skills associated with movement. Neurosciences - Neurosciences
