Profesor
Lic. Mario Di Santo
Professor of Physical Education. Health and neurobiology of control and motor learning.

The study of human movement from a neuromechanical perspective has not been developed or approached in a systematic way in structured educational programs — neither in the context of physical education nor physiotherapy. Physical education in schools and training systems are not managing to satisfy the demands of motor literacy. This creates the need to study how human movement is related to the nervous system and its different functions.

In this Certificate, we provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to develop athletes with greater motor awareness and better decision-making abilities. In order to do this, we cover all the aspects that involve movement, from perceiving stimulus, to processing information, to finally making a decision and executing it. Without a doubt, this structured development of this subject matter will constitute a milestone in our pursuit of such an ambitious goal.

Learn to

Identify the areas that participate in sensorimotor perception as well as how they influence it.

Determine how the central nervous system influences human movement as well as how we can shape the ability to make decisions for movement.

Identify the areas involved in the control and adjustment of movements, as well as how they are involved.

Identify motor failures and determine how to prevent and correct them.
