Dear all



I hope that you have enjoyed the summer.



It is a pleasure for me to announce our phd course: Biomechanics and Motor Control, at the Laboratory of Biomechanics and Motor Control, Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.





International PhD course on Biomechanics and Motor Control

Time
20-23 October 2009

Aim of the course

* to present and discuss the current state-of-the-art in biomechanics and motor control
* to discuss methods used in the field of biomechanics and motor control and their applications in relation to sport and clinical topics

Target group
Phd students and researchers in the field of biomechanics and motor control

Content
The course is an international course on Biomechanics and motor control.
The course focuses on the mechanics and control of human movements as well as the mechanics of tissues and joints. Basic research in these areas will be presented and exercises in the laboratories include human movement analysis, performance testing and computational modeling. The content is directed towards sport as well as clinical problems including optimization of performance, rehabilitation and injury prevention.

Lecturer (the list below is not yet complete)

Professor Alberto E. Minetti, Department of Human Physiology, University of Milan. Italy. Topics: Muscle-tendon behaviour during locomotion

Senior Lecturer Madeleine Lowery, University College Dublin, Ireland. Topics: Modelling the Electromyogram: From cell to system. EMG- force relation.

Huub Maas, phd, Faculty of Human Movement Sciences, Vrieje University, Amsterdam, The Netherland. Topic: Transmission of force from muscle fibers to bone via myotendinous and myofascial pathways. Force transmission between adjacent muscles. Clinical significance.

Associate Professor Michael Voigt, phd, Department of Health Science and Technology, University of Aalborg. Denmark Methods in biomechanics and motor control including movement analysis, reflex methods, TMS, EMG array electrodes, electrical stimulation.. Topics:

Associate Professor Thomas Bull Andersen, phd, Department of Sport Science, University of Aarhus, Denmark

Professor Gisela Sjøgaard, Institute of Sport Science and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark.

Professor Per Aagaard, phd, Institute of Sport Science and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark. Topics: Use of eccentric muscle-tendon loading for the prevention and rehabilitation of overuse injury: biomechanical and neural aspects. Neuromuscular activity during maximal eccentric contraction: spinal vs supraspinal mechanisms, adaptations induced by resistance training. Functional aspects of antagonist muscle coactivation: joint protection, assessment techniques, and effects of training, aging and injury.



Thomas Bandholm, Hvidovre Hospital and University of Copenhagen. Denmark. Topics: CP-patients, function and training.

Natalie Kersting, Department of Health Science and Technology, University of Aalborg. Denmark. Topics: Methods in biomechanics and motor control including movement analysis, reflex methods, TMS, EMG array electrodes, electrical stimulation.

Associate Professor Bente R. Jensen, phd, Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Topics: Effects of lower body positive pressure on muscle activation and joint loads.
