The three disciplines of FBM

Human Movement Sciences

Life is movement: movement is the basis of everything we do. We need to move to survive, to achieve and to enjoy life. Human Movement Sciences demonstrates that research into human movement requires a multidisciplinary approach.

Psychology

From brain to genetics: it all starts with our boundless curiosity about our thinking processes, feelings and behaviour. How do emotions work? What is intelligence? How does social interaction take place?

Education

VU means looking further. Education encompasses this ethos fully: we research not only how parenting influences the developing brain and how education influences learning, but also what comprises good parenting and meaningful education.
