San Diego, CA | November 2, 2018, 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The National Center of Neuromodulation for Rehabilitation (NC NM4R) and National Center for Adaptive Neurotechnology (NCAN) have organized this symposium to focus on the role of activity-dependent spinal cord plasticity in motor control and motor learning in health and disease. The topics addressed will include: spinal cord plasticity during motor learning and in response to trauma and disease; interactions between brain and spinal cord plasticity; physiological and anatomical mechanisms underlying spinal cord plasticity and its impact on behavior; induction and guidance of plasticity in spinal reflex pathways and in corticospinal connections; therapeutic applications of spinal cord plasticity; and related subjects. The targeted attendees include basic and translational research scientists, clinicians, engineers, students, and postdoctoral fellows.
