Dr. Blinch is a motor behavior researcher who studies how the human neuromuscular system accomplishes movement. His research focuses on how the arms coordinate when accomplishing shared or separate goals, and how difficult movements can be simplified by changing the conceptualization of the task. These studies employ cognitive psychology and neuroscience methods combined with trajectory analysis. Jarrod received his PhD in Kinesiology from the University of British Columbia in 2015. Before joining TTU, Dr. Blinch was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education at the University of Lethbridge.
