We are seeking a candidate for a PhD fellowship to work in collaboration with Dr. Fabrice SARLEGNA (Institute of Movement Sciences) and Pr. Olivier FELICIAN (Institute of Systems Neuroscience) in Marseille, France. The aim of the project is to study the neural mechanisms underlying the intermanual transfer of sensorimotor adaptation. More specifically, the proposed approach is to assess the motor skills of healthy individuals and patients with lesions of the corpus callosum. Motion capture and neuroimaging techniques will be used, and in addition to providing additional fundamental knowledge, the project should contribute to a better assessment of neurological diseases and to the optimization of motor learning in the context of rehabilitation. The position is funded by the DOC2AMU program of Aix-Marseille University, the largest university in France and the Francophone world.
Detailed information about the project and its scientific rationale is available on the website:
