Short course in Computational Motor Control
This is a short course that provides a tutorial for the mathematics that has been used to formulate problems in motor control. The course meets twice a week, Wednesday and Fridays, 8-9AM, Traylor 416, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
The course started on Wednesday May 18, 2011. All are welcome.
Instructor: Reza Shadmehr
Lecture 1: Introduction
Lecture 4: Stiffness of the arm, as measured in endpoint and joint coordinates. Slides
Lectures 5-8: Introduction to dynamics: motion of rigid bodies as minimization of an energy based cost, linear and angular momentum, and inertia. These lectures conclude with derivation of dynamics for an arm-like system, and description of a controller that uses an “inverse model” to move the system from one position to another along a desired trajectory.
