Welcome to ANRES2018 – 9th Aalborg Symposium on The Advances in Neurophysiology and Neural Rehabilitation Engineering of Movement


The neurophysiology of movement and neural rehabilitation of movement are rapidly developing research areas. The course focuses on neural engineering solutions for rehabilitation of people suffering from damage to or disease in the central or peripheral nervous system.

This course is organized annually and has a focus on disseminating the most relevant and recent achievements within the area. The course will include a series of internationally recognized speakers and a series of speakers from Aalborg University that are experts within the field. There will be a strong emphasis on providing time for interaction between the speakers and participants. The detailed agenda of the course will be provided on the course web site.

Main topics can include: Animal or human models, neurophysiology of movement, neuroplasticity, neuromodulation, rehabilitation technologies, assessment technologies (e.g. fMRI, TMS, electrophysiology) and other timely topics.

In 2018, the main topics will be on neuromodulation and technologies for rehabilitation to exploit and assess plasticity.


Relevant papers and book chapters related to the specific talks will be announced shortly before the course.



The course targets PhD students working within the areas of motor control, neural rehabilitation engineering or other students with interests in this research area. The course is repeated every year with a different focus, thus participation to the previous edition does not preclude participation in this edition.



The course will be evaluated in two ways

1) mandatory participation over the two days, and

2) active participation in the planned discussion sessions during the course.

During the course, we have planned four discussion sessions around the four main sessions. The discussion session will be driven by questions formulated by the key note speaker at the session (and will be presented at the meeting) and be formulated based on the presentation of the key note speaker and the kee paper suggested by speaker. The discussion will take place in groups and in plenum and will be guided by a senior scientist.

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
