Dr. Craig Chapman is a cognitive neuroscientist who is fascinated by the way we move. His work is motivated by a simple idea: to watch someone move is to watch them think.
In his lab, Dr. Chapman uses a detailed analysis of sensorimotor processing that integrates eye-tracking, electroencephalography (EEG) and motion-tracking, and has shown that a decision about making a movement doesn’t end once the movement is initiated, but continues until the movement is complete. This means that movements provide a window into deciding and thinking, and that movement recording is a powerful research tool for science and diagnostic tool for medicine.
