The seminar will provide a forum for in-depth discussions of issues on motor control and coordination. It is interdisciplinary in nature, perspectives ranging from biomechanics, neurophysiology, motor control, psychology to philosophy. The sessions are aimed to be informal and highly interactive with no preset time limits. Speakers will have 10 minutes of uninterrupted presenting time. Thereafter, they may and should be interrupted whenever questions arise. After the meeting there will be a gathering in honor of the speaker. Graduate students are encouraged to attend and to participate.
