Every day we must continuously adjust our posture to maintain balance and avoid falling. The prevalence of balance impairments associated with cortical lesions (e.g., stroke) demonstrates the importance of the cerebral cortex for human balance. This symposium will present an overview of recently revealed cortical correlates of balance and gait, which show that cortical activity does not only indicate cognitive and motor interference (for example during dual task) but also reflects dynamic adaptation of the gait pattern and reactive balance responses.
The symposium will consist of keynote presentations, invited speaker presentations and live Q&A periods over a duration of 2.5 hours.
Note – a recording of the webinar will be available to ISPGR members in the member only area of the website within a few days of the presentation.
