Raoul Huys,


I am a (human) movement scientist with a research program that centers on the functional organization of (perceptual-motor) behavior. The aim of my research is to help developing a comprehensive view of (human) behavior and cognition, and I believe that movement is an excellent vehicle thereto. My research is inspired by theories of self-organized pattern formation in complex systems. Per definition, such systems are composed of a myriad of components, and functionally characterized by a multitude of processes operating on various (spatial and temporal) scales. Due to interaction between components and processes, patterns of (functional) behaviors emerge at the level of the organism. In my research, I mainly investigate behavioral patterns at the organism level.
