OVERVIEW

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.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES (FURTHER INFO)

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.
