Dr. Bastian’s seminar will be rescheduled for a later date.
Learning and Relearning Movement
Human motor learning depends on a suite of brain mechanisms that are driven by different signals and operate on timescales ranging from minutes to years. Understanding these processes requires identifying how new movement patterns are normally acquired, retained, and generalized, as well as the effects of distinct brain lesions. The lecture focuses on normal and abnormal motor learning and how we can use this information to improve rehabilitation for individuals with neurological damage Amy Bastian, Ph.D. Professor of Neuroscience
