Studying the cerebral activity associated with specific movements is fundamental not only for a better understanding of the brain-movement relationship, but also to shed light on the quanti-qualitative characteristics of the movement.
The research conducted in the field of cognitive and movement neuroscience has shown that brain activity associated with the execution of coordinated and rhythmic movements changes based on the intrinsic quanti-qualitative characteristics of movement, such as speed, direction, and rhythm. For instance, making coordinated complex movements with upper limbs requires a higher and more spread cerebral activation than making simple movements.
Currently, the RINED Neuroscientific Department studies the electrocortical activation that characterizes the execution of rhythmic and coordinated movements of upper limbs in different direction on the sagittal axis.
