Currently, Dr. Cremades' research is focused on the psycho-physiological aspects of human performance using techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG) recordings to measure brain wave activity and electromyography (EMG) to measure muscle activation. His latest research involves the measurement of EEG while performing kinesthetic and visual imagery tasks as well as the development of three dimensional brain mapping to accurately evaluate imagery ability.
