Awarded by: Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS)
Fellow (1 November 1989 - 30 June 1990)
My stay at NIAS has given me time to develop a general theory of rapid-aimed human movement. This unified approach constitutes a framework that can be used to explain about 100 years of contradictory and conflicting results in the field of motor control.
NIAS is an institute for advanced study in the humanities and social sciences.
Each year, the Institute invites around 50 carefully selected scholars, both from within and outside the Netherlands, to its centre in Wassenaar where they are given the opportunity to do research over a ten-month or five-month period. Fellows carry out their research either as individuals or as part of a research theme group.
