Jacob Wienecke

Teaching associate professor

My research is focused on the motor system. The human being cannot live or cannot interact with the surroundings without using the motor system. A simple thing as breathing or communicate cannot occur without the motor system - and maybe the best for learning is to involve the motor system (?).

My research has both a basic science perspective and an applied perspective. The projects investigate,

1)   The basic physiological mechanisms of the motor system and the regulation of these mechanisms.

2)   The motor systems ability to adapt and learn new skills under various circumstances. How can learning be optimized for children, young people, sports talents and adult?

3)   What is the relation between the motor system and cognitive learning? How important is involvement of motor skills during childrens learning process of cognitive skills?
