PT professor shares on topic of motor control Nov. 16

The School of Physical Therapy is excited to host a special presentation by Associate Professor Andrew Meszaros, PT, PhD, from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, in Canyon Commons 101 & 102.

Dr. Meszaros will present the topic “Motor Control Update for the Orthopaedically Minded,” which will provide a succinct modern update of select broad concepts in motor control. Topics will include: effects of motivational influences and autonomy on motor learning; senses of effort and force; movement as a self-organizing and emergent property; “good” versus “bad” variability in movement; antifragility; multifractality; the role of reflexes in voluntary movement; and a survey of misconceptions in sensory processing and therapeutic exercise.

Light refreshments will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m., and the presentation will start at 6 p.m. All are welcome to attend this free event.
