We would like to thank the attendees of the 4th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics for another outstanding event.

The Symposium was held on Tuesday July 5th 2016 on the workshop day of the XXI Congress of the International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology (ISEK) in Chicago (USA).

The Initiative, organized by prof. Carlo J. De Luca and the ISB Working Group in Motor Control, featured the following internationally distinguished researchers:

Dr. Paola Contessa (Delsys Inc, USA)

Invited Speakers

  • Dr. Joshua C. Kline (Delsys Inc., USA) “The empirically unsupported practice of estimating common synaptic inputs
  • Prof. Andrea D’Avella (Universita' di Messina and Santa Lucia Foundation, Italy) “Muscle synergies: biomechanical epiphenomenon or neural control strategy?”
  • Prof. Paul Hodges (University of Queensland, Australia) “Probing muscle coordination with electromyography: Lessons from adaptation to pain
  • Prof. Patrick Crago (Case Western Reserve University, USA) “Augmenting voluntary reach and grasp in stroke survivors by functional electrical stimulation

See the event flyer for details.

Thank you all for participating!
