Read more about my interests in research and collaboration.

My research focuses on how everyday physical activity and exercise affect the functions of the nervous system in childhood, adulthood and old age.

My research also includes neuromotor control of exercise exercises and everyday movements.

I lead an interdisciplinary research group External link. that collaborates with industry, schools and health care.

We work translationally with laboratory experiments, epidemiology, efficacy studies and implementation studies.

We want the research results to be put to use through the working methods, services and products that our partners work with.

Do you want your business to support physical activity that promotes brain health? Please feel free to contact me with your request for cooperation.
