A 3-day International Conference "Bernstein's Traditions in Motor Control"
will take place in Penn State University, August 23-25, 1996. The

**motor disorders and rehabilitation,
**psychophysiological aspects of movements,
**models and theories in motor control, and
**integrative approach to movement studies.

There will also be free presentations. If you would like to present a
paper, please mail two copies of an Abstract (single-spaced, one page) to:
Mark Latash, Biomechanics Lab., Penn State University, University
Park, PA 16802.

The deadline for Abstract submission is March 1, 1996.
