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
