Welcome to Sixth Anual 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. This course is therefore organized annually with a focus on disseminating the most relevant and recent achievements. The course will include a series of internationally recognized speakers and a series of speakers from Aalborg University that are experts within the field.

This year the focus will be on neural engineering solutions to stroke patients in relation to the ICNR2014 conference, and the course will be held as a one-day event just prior to the conference. The course will consist of four workshops (you are to select one in the morning and one in the afternoon). The workshops are: 1) Brain computer interfaces for neurorehabilitation, 2) Invasive techniques in neurorehabilitation, 3) Robots in rehabilitation, and 4) Functional electrical stimulation in neurorehabilitation - where are we now?

Learn more about the course and the workshops here (http://icnr2014.org/workshops.aspx).

The price for attending the course is DKK 1500.

As well as registering in Moodle (in order to obtain your ECTS), please also register here (http://icnr2014.org/workshops.aspx) in order for us to know which workshops you wish to attend.  

Relevant papers and book chapters will be announced shortly before the course.

The course targets PhD students working within the areas of motor control, neural rehabilitation engineering or 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 students attending this course should have a basic knowledge of motor control and of the role of afferent feedback during locomotion.

Will be announced at the course.

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.
