Neuromechanics is an emerging field that views the brain, body, and environment question as a biologically-salient complex system which can provide a stepping-stone to applications such as brain-computer interfaces, neurorehabilitative assistive devices, and physically-immersive training procedures. In a series of experiments and computational investigations conducted in the past year, neuromechanical principles were used in two ways: to better understand how the design of motion-controlled and haptic-based virtual environments conform to features of human physiology, and how such environments can be used to create ‘mutant’ conditions to better understand the natural range of physiological responses to such environments.
