Our Research Areas

Kinesiology at McMaster is home to leading Canadian and international researchers who study human movement from a broad perspective using laboratory and field-based approaches to create a brighter world. Our work clusters in three main areas: integrative physiologymechanics and control of movement, and neuroscience and behaviour. We have other faculty members who primarily focus on teaching and the pedagogy of learning.
