Seminar: #BrunelCuppaScience Seminar Series

#BrunelCuppaScience Seminar Series emulates the popular #PintofScience worldwide events. The seminars are designed to celebrate and share Brunel's vibrant research community through showcasing research excellence and unveil scientific findings to our broader audience in an informal "cuppa science" format.

Brain, movement and magnetism

 

Dr Marco Davare will highlight his latest findings about how our brain generates movement, ultimately allowing us to interact with our surroundings and perceive the world. Cutting-edge magnetic brain stimulation techniques in human and non-human primates allowed us to find out which brain circuits control particular movement parameters, and how information about movement is encoded at a neural level. The understanding of these fundamental brain mechanisms is key for the design of dextrous robotics and novel therapeutic approaches used in patients with movement disorders. 

Davare holds a PhD in Neurosciences from Université catholique de Louvain. He is a world leading researcher in the use of non-invasive brain stimulation to find out how the brain controls movement, a technique he developed while at UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology as a BBSRC David Phillips fellow. At Brunel, Marco Davare now uses his fundamental neuroscience expertise to link engineering with clinical sciences for developing new neurorehabilitation protocols and digital health tools.
