Symposium Details & Purpose: A group of outstanding investigators will present their perspective and research at the intersection of Motor Control and Biomechanics. The goal of the Symposium is to bring together researchers that have an interest in these fields and introduce Motor Control concepts in Biomechanics for a wide range of applications including Robotics, Rehabilitation, Kinesiology, Modeling, Sport Science, and more.
