Juergen Konczak

Jürgen Konczak, PhD, professor in the School of Kinesiology, and director of the Human Sensorimotor Control Lab (HSCL), was recently interviewed for the article, “Everything You Need to Know About Proprioception, Your Body’s ‘Silent’ Sixth Sense,” from Popular Mechanics. The article discusses proprioception and Konczak is quoted several times explaining what proprioception is, what issues are caused when it malfunctions, and the research he’s doing on it. Regarding research, Konczak is quoted, “The question that we and many other people ask is can we basically go through some kind of proprioceptive tactile sensory training, and if we improve that, will that also improve motor function?”
