March 23 and 24, 2020
This symposium will 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; activity-dependent neuromuscular plasticity; therapeutic applications of spinal cord plasticity; and related subjects.
March 23 will be a full day devoted to spinal cord plasticity in motor control. The morning of March 24 will focus on operant conditioning and spinal cord plasticity. Directly following the symposium, at noon on March 24, Dr. Steven Wolf of Emory University will give the keynote address for the Operant Conditioning Advanced Workshop. All symposium attendees are invited to attend this keynote.
The conference will be held on the campus of the Medical University of South Carolina in College of Health Professions Building A, 151-A Rutledge Avenue, Charleston, SC.
