This course is cancelled


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.

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

Prerequisites: 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.

Evaluation: The students have to be present at the symposium. A poster session will be organized during the symposium, and the students should bring a poster on their own work (it can be a poster presented at another conference or meeting).

Fee: A fee of DKK 500 will be charged for catering.

Organisers: Professor Ole Kæseler Andersen, email:, Professor Winnie Jensen, email:

Lecturers: Organisers, invited lecturers and lecturers from HST

ECTS: 1.0

Dates: 7 and 8 October 2020 (9.00 - 16.00)

Place: Aalborg University, Niels Jernes Vej, room 4-111

Deadline: 16 September 2020

Number of seats: 30

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 3,000 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 four 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.
