The ISB Working Group in Motor Control hosted their 10th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics


August 5, 2019

The ISB Working Group in Motor Control hosted their 10th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics on August 2nd, 2019 in conjunction with the 2019 Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) and American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) in Calgary, Canada.

The symposium featured internationally distinguished researchers in the field of Motor Control and Biomechanics, including:

  • Dr. Lena Ting, Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology (USA)
    History-dependent muscle forces for sensing and moving in normal and impaired movement
  • Dr. Francisco Valero-Cuevas, University of Southern California (USA)
    Feasibility theory: an integrative approach to neuromuscular control
  • Dr. Julia T. Choi, University of Massachusetts Amherst (USA)
    Using intramuscular coherence to assess cortical contribution to locomotor adaptation
  • Dr. Emma Hodson-Tole, Manchester Metropolitan University (UK)
    Evaluating the structure of skeletal muscle excitation and co-ordination to understand performance limits during cycling in humans
  • Dr. Yasuo Kawakami, Waseda University (Japan)
    Musculotendinous mechanics for exercise performance enhancement: importance of motor control

We would like to extend a special thank-you to all the speakers and the 200+ attendees for a fantastic session, to ISB for their continuous support to our group, and to the De Luca Foundation (DLF) for their assistance. The next symposia are currently being planned for 2020. Please check our website periodically for all news and event updates.
