Interesting points from Belgium

Yesterday, we had the great pleasure of hosting a seminar by Professor Joris Leijnse from the Research Group of Anatomy and Embryology at the university of Ghent, Belgium.

The seminar contained three parts:

- Pushed to the limit and beyond – anatomical hand variations as biomechanical causes of instrument-technical playing problems in musicians

- The human finger is uncontrollable by its muscles alone

- Anatomical limitations and conflicting functional demands: - the joint fixation mechanisms of the finger extensors versus finger independence
