September 4, 2008 - The American Society of Neuroscience has chosen a poster presentation by Prof. Jürgen Konczak, Heidi Vander Velden, and L Jaeger to be included in the media materials of their upcoming Annual Conference, November 15-19 in Washington, DC. The title of the presentation is "Learning to play the violin: motor control by freezing, not freeing degrees of freedom."
Neuroscience 2008 is the largest neuroscience conference in the world with 25,000 attendees. The conference receives close to 18,000 submissions and chooses about 500 to include in their lay language summary because they are deemed to be of special interest to the public.
Heidi Vander Velden, an advisee of Dr. Konczak, received her M.A. in Kinesiology in 2006.
