Ulrik Röijezon, new professor of physiotherapy at Luleå University of Technology, lectures on the human ability to control his movements and how we can learn new movements and skills. However, movement control can be affected in various health conditions, such as long-term pain or aging, and we need to train to improve movement control.

The human body needs movement and load to feel good. This applies to all physiological systems and tissues: heart and vessels, skeleton, joints, muscles and nervous system. Of particular interest is the plasticity of the nervous system (ability to restructure). This is the prerequisite for being able to learn new movements and skills, but it can also be adversely affected by various illnesses and inactivity. In our work, we study the effects of aging and various ill health conditions, but also people with exceptionally good movement control such as elite athletes, musicians and dancers.
