Satellite Meeting

Join us April 30 – May 1, 2017 for the NCM Satellite Meeting “The Roles of Proprioception and Vision in Perception and Action: Basic Science and Clinical Applications”. The Satellite meeting will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Burlington Road in advance of the annual Society for the Neural Control of Movement Meeting.

Neural Control of Movement Satellite Meeting

The roles of Proprioception and Vision in Perception and Action: Basic Science and Clinical Applications

The Satellite Meeting will begin with registration and a drinks reception on Sunday April 30th followed by the main sessions on Monday May 1, 2017 Dublin, Ireland

The satellite is organized by T. Richard Nichols (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Robert Sainburg (Penn State University and Penn State College of Medicine).

This symposium is designed to develop an interactive environment among leaders in the field addressing the sensory control of movement in order to identify critical scientific and clinical directions for the future. The symposium will be launched with a keynote presentation by Jonathan Cole, neurologist and author of “Pride and a Daily Marathon” and “Losing Touch”, who will discuss his work with Ian Waterman, a patient who has learned to live without proprioception.

Four subsequent sessions will address the following topics:

1) The role of proprioception in perception and action,

2) The role of vision in perception and action,

3) The integration of vision and proprioception for perception and action,

4) Clinical application to stroke, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and limb amputation.

Each session will be followed by a panel discussion.

*Posters are invited and will be presented during lunch

Poster submissions for the satellite meeting can be submitted online. Please note all submitters must be a NCM Member in good standing in order to submit.  Submissions are being accepted until February 20, 2017. 

Posters submitted to the Annual Society for the Neural Control of Movement Meeting can also be submitted to the Satellite Meeting.
