ADVANCES IN MOTOR REHABILITATION

June 19, 1998

Hilton Hotel - Lisle (Chicago), Illinois


The symposium is designed to stimulate and advance scientific knowledge,
professional interaction, and the exchange of ideas related to Physical
Medicine and Rehabilitation, and human movement analysis in clinical and
research settings. The program will consist of keynote lectures,
free/poster presentations and round table discussions focusing on bridging
the gap between Physical Rehabilitation and Motor Control, Biomechanics and
Engineering.
The topics of the symposium will cover neurophysiology of movements, motor
disorders and rehabilitation, biomechanics and motor control.

SYMPOSIUM OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this symposium, participants will be able to identify
basic rules, fundamental ideas, and key hypotheses related to motor
coordination and rehabilitation, and recognize major directions in research
crucial for expanded knowledge in new approaches to the study of motor
rehabilitation.

ABSTRACTS
Participants, who would like to present a poster or abstract, please submit
to the street or e-mail address below. Abstracts should be one page;
include Title (in capital letters), authors name(s), and institutional
