The course Information processing systems aims to integrate with new "objective" and "quantitative" information the notions from other courses on subjects related to the sciences of human behavior, the pathophysiology of motor function and disability.
At the end of the course students will learn to use spreadsheets and know the tools for the search of scientific articles of international literature, for the analysis of myoelectric signals, posture, motor performance, brain activation.
The course will address methodologies and evaluation techniques, with emphasis on the mechanisms involved in the voluntary movement and in locomotion. Specifically, the following topics will be covered: electromyography, posturography, baropodometry, kinematic motion capture analysis systems, innovative tools for quantitative assessment of motor performance, functional magnetic resonance imaging with dedication to the motor functions, instruments for scientific research, tools for signal display and processing.
