The program’s highlight will be a keynote lecture by Dr. Karl Newell, Associate Dean for Research, University of Georgia. Dr. Newell’s research interests lie in the area of human movement in general and more specifically in motor learning and control. His research focuses on the coordination, control and skill of normal and abnormal human movement across the lifespan; intellectual disabilities and development of motor skills; and, drug and exercise influences on movement control. One of his major themes of research is motor learning across the life span with an emphasis on the information for and dynamics of change in coordination, control and skill of learning and development. The other major theme of his research is the study of variability in human movement and posture with specific reference to the onset of aging and Parkinson’s disease. His research has been essentially continuously funded with much of this support coming from NIH and NSF.
The organizers also encourage faculty, postdocs, and students to present scientific posters during the meeting relating to human movement. A dedicated unopposed time for the scientific posters will be provided in the program. Awards for posters will also be given at the social immediately following the keynote speaker. Meeting information is available through the CRHMV
