UK sensorimotor conference in Birmingham

This is an informal chance for the UK Sensory-Motor community to come together, present work and discuss future collaborations. The scope of the meeting is wide ranging: from animal studies through human and clinical work, to robotics and computational neuroscience. We will aim to distribute speaking slots as broadly as possible across the groups that attend.

Places are limited so to book your place please click the registration link and complete the online form as soon as possible.  Also, please forward this link to students and post-docs in your group and any other colleagues who might be interested.

This year the conference is in Birmingham, and will be held at Aston University.

Registration is £50, which will include the contribution for dinner!

Delsys, being at the forefront of innovative developments in electromyography (EMG) for more than 25-years, have established the foundation for unmatched signal quality, consistency and reliability.
The Delsys Trigno wireless technology builds upon this solid foundation allowing unrestricted subject motion while maintaining unmatched signal quality. This is acutely demonstrated through the latest Trigno sensor technology such as: Trigno Avanti (EMG and IMU), Trigno Quattro (4 x EMG mini heads and IMU) and Trigno Galileo (surface EMG decomposition for dynamic contractions).
