22 January 2024

Somatosensation: an overlooked sense in motor learning
Most people can localise their hand with their eyes closed. Despite the omnipresence of this somatosensation, scientific theories on motor learning are based on learning from manipulated visual information. van Mastrigt  will study the role of somatosensory feedback in motor learning.

Van Mastrigt received her PhD from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam on December 23, 2023.
