5th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics at ACSM 2017, Denver (USA) “Motor Learning, Coordination and Adaptation in Exercise”

We are pleased to announce that the 5th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics will be held in Denver, Colorado (USA) on May 30th 2017, on the pre-conference day of the 64th Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).

Date, Time and Venue: Tuesday May 30th 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Hyatt Regency Denver Hotel, 650 15th Street Denver, CO 80202 (USA).

Symposium Details and Purpose: A group of outstanding investigators will present their perspective and research at the intersection of Motor Control and Biomechanics. The goal of the Symposium is to bring together researchers that have an interest in these fields and introduce Motor Control concepts in Biomechanics for a wide range of applications including Robotics, Rehabilitation, Kinesiology, Modeling, Sport Science, and more.

Invited Speakers:

  • "The use of surface EMG in understanding voluntary muscle function: Insights from the work of Dr. Travis W. Beck" Dr. Matt Stock (University of Central Florida, USA)
  • "Perturbation of habitual joint movement paths affects extrinsic foot muscle metabolism, motor control and neuromuscular fatigue in cyclic exercise" Dr. Gert-Peter Brüggemann, (Institute of Biomechanics and Orthopaedics German Sport University Cologne, Germany)
  • "Examining movement coordination and it's variability to understand pathological gait" Dr. Katherine Boyer (University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA)
  • "When self-selected running form is not preferred" Dr. Bryan Heiderscheit (University of Wisconsin, USA)
  • "Neural Adaptations of motor unit firing behavior compensate for muscle fatigue" Dr. Joshua C. Kline (Delsys Inc., USA)
  • "Myosin heavy chain influences firing rate behavior from moderate to high intensity targeted forces" Michael A. Trevino (University of Kansas, USA)

Who Should Attend: Researchers and students with an interest in Biomechanics and Motor Control should attend. Participants will have the opportunity to discover the latest developments in these fields and discuss with experienced investigators.

Registration and Fee: Closed.
