Overview

Master of Science in Kinesiology - Biomechanics and Neuroscience

This Program Needs a Supervisor.

Biomechanics and Neuroscience researchers work to better understand human structure and function interactions between biology (muscles, bones, joints), mechanics (forces, acceleration, motion) and/or the nervous system (brain, nerves, genetics). 

We as a society aim to improve our understanding of body movement in health and disease, within different population groups (e.g. men and women), across the lifespan (from young to old), and in a variety of settings (e.g. sport, workplace and rehabilitation). 

From this research approach, in turn, we can design and implement intervention strategies to augment health and well-being.

McGill's research experts in this group study, for example:

  • Mobility in healthy, aging and in people with disabilities such as stroke and Parkinson’s disease from a brain and behavior perspective;
  • The impact of training, fatigue and musculoskeletal disorders on posture, motion and function of athletes and workers;
  • How ergonomic interventions such as standing desks affect neuromechanical and performance characteristics;
  • Testing of novel sport equipment design and their impact on athletic performance in running and skating;
  • How biomarkers can help detect functional impairments associated with juvenile diseases;
  • The epigenetic modifications associated with brain and spinal cord postnatal development particularly affecting neuroplasticity.
