Eventhough, drawing, handwriting, grasping, and pointing are tasks that individuals usually perform seemingly effortless, these tasks are very complex.

The Fine Motor Control and Learning laboratory focuses on how we are able to perform and (re)learn these fine motor tasks when the control of movements is challenged by an increase of demands due to stress and/or mental load, or when control of movements is challenged as result of physiologic deterioration of the movement system as result of advanced age and/or neurological disease.

The Fine Motor Control and Learning Laboratory is located in Room 74 and 71 (temporary, see below) of the HP Long Fieldhouse. These rooms are dedicated to data collection and analysis of upper-body movements.

Equipment:

  • 24” Widescreen Flat panel LCD monitor.
  • Several 22” Widescreen Flat panel LCD monitors.
  • Wacom Intuos3 9x12 Digitizer Tablet.
  • Wacom Intuos3 12x19 Digitizer Tablet.
  • Wacom Intuos 12x18 Digitizer Tablet in portable frame for “mobile” data collection.
  • Several Wacom Digitizer Ink and non-inking pens, including a modified pen to measure ranges of force exceeding the normal ranges of axial pen force.
  • Oasis digitizer collection box.
  • Laptops for “mobile” data collection and presentation.
  • Several PCs, including two high power PCs, for extreme performance demands needed to display, collect, and analyze data.
  • Specialized software for the collection and processing of fine motor movements (MovAlyzeR and OASIS).
  • Several other software packages, including MatLab, SPSS, and MS Office programs, for collection, processing, analysis, reporting, and presentation of data.

Dr. Van Gemmert, Director, Fine Motor Control and Learning Laboratory shares also space with Dr. Hondzinski in Hatcher Hall, Room 15 & 18 which are setup for data collection of individuals with Parkinson's disease. Room 15 is setup for the collection of whole body movement data and Room 18 is setup for fine movement data collection (temporary all equipment of Hatcher Hall, Room 18 is located and setup in HP Long Fieldhouse, Room 71).
