9th Annual Aalborg Symposium on the Advances in Neurophysiology and Neural Rehabilitation Engineering of Movement - ANRES2018

The 9th Annual International Ph.D. Symposium on the Advances in Neurophysiology and Neural Rehabilitation Engineering of Movement

Time

22.11.2018 kl. 09.00 - 23.11.2018 kl. 16.00

Description

The neurophysiology of movement and neural rehabilitation of movement are rapidly developing research areas. The course focuses on neural engineering solutions for rehabilitation of people suffering from damage to or disease in the central or peripheral nervous system.

This course is organized annually and has a focus on disseminating the most relevant and recent achievements within the area. The course will include a series of internationally recognized speakers and a series of speakers from Aalborg University that are experts within the field. There will be a strong emphasis on providing time for interaction between the speakers and participants. In 2018, the main topics will be on neuromodulation and technologies for rehabilitation to exploit and assess plasticity.

ORGANIZERS

Professor Winnie Jensen
Professor Ole Kæseler Andersen

PREREQUISITES

The course targets PhD students working within the areas of motor control, neural rehabilitation engineering or other students with interests in this research area. The course is repeated every year with a different focus, thus participation to the previous edition does not preclude participation in this edition.

LITERATURE

Relevant papers and book chapters related to the specific talks will be announced shortly before the course.

PROGRAM

See the program here.

EVALUATION

The course will be evaluated in two ways

1) mandatory participation over the two days, and

2) active participation in the planned discussion sessions during the course.

During the course, we have planned four discussion sessions around the four main sessions. The discussion session will be driven by questions formulated by the key note speaker at the session (and will be presented at the meeting) and be formulated based on the presentation of the key note speaker and the kee paper suggested by speaker. The discussion will take place in groups and in plenum and will be guided by a senior scientist.

 

FEE

A participation fee of DKK 500 will be charged.

The registration fee covers a light lunch as well as coffee/tea both days.

REGISTRATION

The registration for the event is closed.

The Ph.D. course counts for 1.0 ECTS credit. All students will receive a diploma stating participation in the course.
NB: All Ph.D. students: The course is co-organized by the Doctoral School in Medicine, Biomedical Science and Technology, and an official diploma will thus be issued by the doctoral school. Therefore, all Ph.D. students must also sign up via The Doctoral School.

Deadline for registration is 09 November 2018.
