MU/UNIGE MOU exchange student Cecilia De Vicariis presented her research at the 2020 International Conference for Robotics and Automation (ICRA2020) workshop, Learning of Manual Skills in Humans and Robots, which was held virtually on May 31, 2020. Cecilia's presentation, entitled, "Learning and Generalization of Force Coordination Patterns Between Different Hand Configurations," focuses on how people learn to reorganize the control of redundant finger-tip forces to perform goal-directed movements and how those learned skills are generalized in a different end posture. Cecilia's presentation is based on research conducted at the Marquette-MCW Neuromotor Control Laboratory (NMCL) in the summer of 2019 under the direction of Drs. Scheidt and Mrotek.
