Description

This volume of Progess in Brain Research follows on from the 32nd International Symposium of the Groupe de recherche sur le système nerveux central (GRSNC), May 2010, and aims to provide an overview of the various neural mechanisms that contribute to learning new motor and sensory skills, and to adapting to changed circumstances, including the use of devices and implants to substitute for lost sensory or motor abilities (brain machine interfaces). The focus is on recent developments covering five major themes:

  • Mechanisms to improve motor performance
  • Neuro-rehabilitation of motor function
  • Mechanisms to enhance sensory perception
  • Cross modal interationc for enhancing sensorimotor performance
  • Assistive technologies to enhance sensorimotor performance

Quotes and reviews

"This is a great resource for those looking for a collection of studies on topics pertaining to neural plasticity and neural mechanisms covered at the annual international symposium. It clearly highlights some of the innovations made in the field and does so in a concise and organized manner."--Doody.com, September 20, 2013
