We would like to thank the attendees of the 3rd Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics for another outstanding event.

The Symposium was held on Tuesday May 31st 2016 on the pre-conference day of the Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) in Boston, USA.

The Initiative, organized by prof. Carlo J. De Luca and the ISB Working Group in Motor Control, featured the following internationally distinguished researchers:


  • Prof. Irene S. Davis (Spaulding National Running Center, USA) “Gait Retraining to Reduce Injury Risk in Runners”
  • Prof. Jim Richards (University of Central Lancashire, UK) “Skin, Brain, Muscle, Movement: Can proprioceptive interventions such as taping and bracing change neuromuscular control?”
  • Dr. Joshua Kline (Delsys, Inc., USA) “Transposed firing activation of motor units”
  • Prof. Joseph Hamill (University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA) “Head and tibial acceleration as a function of stride frequency and visual feedback during running”
  • Prof. Jason DeFreitas (Oklahoma State University, USA) “Using dEMG to assess motor unit adaptations with training”
  • Alessio Puleo (Politecnico di Torino, Italy) “Is the notion of central fatigue based on a solid foundation?”


See the event flyer for details.

Thank you all for participating and see you at our next event at ISEK 2016!
