About me

  • Bachelor of Physiotherapy, 1998, Linköping University
    PhD, 2004, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet


  • My research concerns exercise neurophysiology, i.e. how neural control of
    movement is affected by fatigue, learning and exercise, and how exercise and
    our habitual physical activity patterns affect neurophysiological mechanisms
    underlying brain health.


  • My teaching mainly concerns the neurophysiological basis of motor control and
    learning, and methods for investigating this. My teaching also concerns
    biomechanics and research design.
