Neuromotor Science

Our neuromotor science program prepares individuals to advance the science of neuromotor control and biomechanics of human posture and movement in individuals across lifespan and spectrum of health and disability levels.

The study of human movement as an outcome of health and functioning in addition to understanding the mechanisms underlying neuromotor system integration and behavior, is foundational to many health professions. The skills needed to be successful require fluency across disciplines of kinesiology, rehabilitation, engineering and neuroscience and cannot be fully addressed in undergraduate or professional entry-level degree programs. There is a need for rigorously trained scientists with interdisciplinary training in neuromechanics, neurobiology and biomechanics of the sensorimotor system, and the impact of health conditions, disease and disability on human movement.

Why Temple Neuromotor:

  • We have an interdisciplinary emphasis with strong and active collaborations between clinicians, researchers and scientists across disciplines.
  • We have state-of-the-art laboratories and research centers, which offer individualized laboratory experiences.
  • Our faculty are internationally recognized from physical therapy, kinesiology, engineering and neuroscience disciplines.
  • The Philadelphia region is known for its academic richness and diversity. Temple is a nexus of advancement in science, technology and health.
