The goal of the new Motor Control Seed Group is to provide a forum to highlight and foster the growing interest in scientific work that bridges the fields of Motor Control and Biomechanics.

As part of this initiative, the next ISB Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics is currently being planned for the upcoming XXVth Congress of ISB in Glasgow, Scotland, July 12-16, 2015.


Check the ISB 2015 webpage for updates and we look forward to seeing you in Glasgow!
