Coffee Talk: seminar looks at how we grab our morning java

February 8, 2016 — 

The next installment of the popular FKRM’s Health, Leisure, and Human Performance Research Institute’s (HLHPRI) Seminar Series takes place Friday, Feb. 12 with How you grab your cup of coffee.

When you are reaching for first morning cup of java, do you prefer a large mug or a small demi-tasse?  Do you lunge for it, or approach cautiously?  Is it “robotic”, or exquisitely planned, monitored, and executed differently each time?  Our invited speaker, Dr. Luc Tremblay from University of Toronto, will be leading us through his analysis of what we go through consciously and subconsciously when we make what seem to be simple, but are in fact highly complex, reaching movements.

What: HLHP Research Institute Seminar Series — ‘How you grab your cup of coffee’
Who: Dr. Luc Tremblay, University of Toronto
When: Friday, Feb. 12, 2016, 2:30 p.m.
