In cooperation with the Robert Bosch Krankenhaus (RBK) in Stuttgart (Germany), we have analyzed eye-head coordination while walking in healthy participants and patients with neurodegenerative diseases. Proper coordination is essential for body balance and thus health. Injuries and other consequences from keeling over can impair quality of life massively. Often, old people never get on their feet again when breaking a leg or hip.
The doctoral retreat 2016 was held at the Waldhotel Zollernblick from 18th to 20th of July. We, the PhD students from SFB-TRR 161, would like to thank everybody who made it possible to discuss our research and collaboration in a relaxed atmosphere.
