    *** ANNOUNCEMENT ***

    'Balance at all times'
    8 November 2001
    Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    This symposium will focus on the ability to stay upright in the face of a
    variety of disturbances over different timescales. Top scientists will give
    lectures on balance control in five different timescales from an
    evolutionary timescale to the here-and-now. The symposium will provide an
    overview of the ways in which balance problems are solved, viewed from
    various fundamental and clinical perspectives.


    Phylogenetic timescale: The evolution of human balance
    Dr.E. Otten, The Netherlands

    Ontogenetic timescale: The development of human balance control across the
    life span
    Prof. M.H. Woollacott, USA

    Long-term timescale: Compensatory postural strategies in longstanding
    Parkinson's disease
    Dr. B. Bloem, The Netherlands

    Short-term timescale: Reversible adaptation to balance disturbances due to
    conflicting information, as in motion sickness and seasickness
    Dr. W. Bles, The Netherlands

    Here-and-Now timescale: The temporal structure of spontaneous postural sway
    Dr. M.A. Riley, USA

    During the lunch break a poster session will be held. This session will
    feature posters on subjects relevant to the symposium theme, as well as
    posters that will provide an impression of other research projects conducted
    by the IFKB.

    the symposium can be found on If you
