The course is the second of two parts which aim to provide a basic background on movement neurophysiology. In this course the main goal is to provide students with the latest trends in human neurophysiology research, for both spinal and supraspinal control of movement, from the leading researchers in the field. The lecture topics will include the modularity of motor control and motor learning, clinical applications of spinal and supraspinal measurements, the use of electroencephalography (EEG) activity to assess the neural control of movements. Students will have the opportunity to reflect on these research trends and discuss the potential use of neurophysiological measurements on their own PhD studies during seminars.



Selected papers and book chapters will be provided to the participants shortly before the course.



A basic background within basic anatomy and physiology is desirable. Preferably, students participating in this course should have attended to the course “Neurophysiology of Movement I”.



Students will be asked to present the methods for a scientific study, in which one (or more) of the topics covered during the course would be used to describe a relevant research question. Ideally, this research method could be in line with the research questions raised on their own PhD projects.

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.
