Progress in Motor Control XI

The Progress in Motor Control (PMC) Conference is one of the primary international forums for exchanging fundamental information between sub-disciplines in the field of movement studies. Now in its eleventh year, PMC XI is co-hosted by the International Society of Motor Control and The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.

PMC XI will focus on important and timely topics in the field of motor control including basic, translational and clinical investigations integrating concepts of anatomy, physiology, computational neuroscience and therapeutic outcomes into movement studies.  The meeting begins with a satellite conference entitled, Spinal Cord Injury: From Mechanisms to Treatments on July 19, 2017 which will focus on spinal cord injury and repair.


Satellite Track – July 19, 2017


  • Can We Repair the Spinal Cord?
  • Reorganization in Sensorimotor Cortex Following Spinal Cord Injury
  • Strategies to Augment Spinal Cord Function
  • Clinical Consequences Following Spinal Cord Injury


PMC XI Track – July 20-22, 2017


  • The Neural Control of Voluntary Actions: from cortical to subcortical mechanisms involved in the planning, execution, and timing of movement
  • Theories of Motor Control: from computational neuroscience applied to an injured system to movement disorders and adaptations after stroke and spinal cord injury
  • Movement Perception and Performance: from motor learning to spinal motor neurons
  • July 22, 2017: Awards Dinner and Bernstein Prize – Announce Poster Award Winners
