Human neurophysiological measurements and motion analysis


I have done research on biosignal measurements and analysis since year 2005 in the University of Eastern Finland (previously University of Kuopio) and in the Kuopio University Hospital. I received my PhD degree in year 2012 and the title of a docent of medical physics especially neurophysiological measurements and movement analysis in 2022. My special research interest has been in developing of monitoring methods for evaluation of movement disorders such as for Parkinson's disease and myoclonus.
