Konczak to present at Medtronic Neuromodulation Visiting Scholars Program

KonczakJ-2003.jpgDr. Juergen Konczak, Kinesiology professor in biomechanics and neuromotor control, has been invited to present at the Medtronic Neuromodulation Visiting Scholars Program on October 4 at the Twin Cities headquarters. His topic, "Perceptual Changes in Parkinson's disease: Effects on Proprioception and Haptic," involves research that suggests Parkinson's disease (PD) may lead to changes in perception which affect motor function. Dr. Konczak will report on a series of studies that his group has conducted, and show some new results on whether pharmacological intervention or deep brain stimulation can alleviate the perceptual deficits in PD. In addition, he will outline how these perceptual changes are linked to the motor deficits observed in PD.
