  • Symposium: Translational Engineering in Neurorehabilitation. Registration: October 20

    ************************************************** ***************************
    Registration Deadline Extended: October 20, 2014
    3rd Symposium on "Translational Engineering in Neurorehabilitation - Decoding the neural drive to muscles for advanced assistive technologies"

    October 23 - 24, 2014.
    Department of Neurorehabilitation Engineering
    University Medical Center Goettingen
    Address: Von-Siebold-Str. 3, 37075, Goettingen, Germany
    Auditorium: Grosser Hörsaal MED 25
    ************************************************** ***************************

    This Symposium is organized as part of the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant DEMOVE. The project proposes the development of advanced electrode systems for in-vivo electrophysiological recordings from nerves and muscles in humans and new computational methods and models for extracting functionally significant information on human movement from these recordings. The highly innovative focus is that of providing the link between the cellular mechanisms and the behavior of the whole motor system in the intact human, i.e. to fill the gap between our neural and functional understanding of movement. On the basis of these new technologies, the project aims at answering open questions in movement neuroscience and using novel principles for man-machine interface and interaction. Specific applications in man machine interaction are related to neurorehabilitation technologies, such as functional electrical stimulation as well as myoelectric and peripheral neural prostheses.
