The OpenSim Project and the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) at Stanford invite you to join our next webinar, featuring Jeff Reinbolt from the University of Tennessee and Misagh Mansouri from the University of Pittsburgh.

Title: Locus of Control: Are You in Control of Your Simulations?
Speakers: Misagh Mansouri, University of Pittsburgh
Jeff Reinbolt, University of Tennessee
Time: Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time

How the central nervous system coordinates muscles during normal and abnormal movement to achieve a behavioral task is an open question and computer simulation is a vital tool for providing answers. We have been developing and applying a computational framework, in combination with experiments, to begin uncovering unrecognized mechanisms of neuromuscular control, dynamics, and function for behavioral tasks. The framework provides an interface between MATLAB/Simulink and the open-source neuromusculoskeletal simulation software OpenSim, enabling rapid model-based design of control algorithms for the neuromusculoskeletal system. In this webinar, we will cover key concepts of this framework and highlight our research investigating coordinated and uncoordinated movements. This framework may be used to discover new movements as treatments and predict outcomes using pre-treatment data on an individual basis. Learn more about the webinar at

Participation is free, but you must register in advance. Attendance is limited to 100. We also ask that you join the webinar 5 minutes early to orient yourself to the webinar interface.
