The Masterclass by IFCN presentations were created in response to a call from IFCN members societies for more high quality, complimentary, online educational content. The series will provide a new presentation every month from top clinical neurophysiologists around the world, and each will include time for discussion with the lecturer following the presentation.
Providing the best in contemporary clinical neurophysiology education delivered in the most optimal format is the primary educational goal of the IFCN. As such, Masterclass by IFCN will be available complimentary to all registrants.
Professor Jonathan Cole will present:
The Experience and Neuroscience of Severe Sensory Loss.
The lecture will take place on Saturday, September 16, 2023 at 8:00 AM (EST.
Professor Jonathan Cole will present "The Experience and Neuroscience of Severe Sensory Loss".
The lecture will describe the consequences of the loss of large myelinated sensory nerves, (leading to absence of touch and proprioception), focussing on the experience of subject IW, with whom I have worked for nearly 40 years, but also including other similar participants. To understand the role of proprioception and touch we need to explore the consequences of their loss. The lecture will consider the neuroscience of his remaining sensory afferents, the awareness of motor command, motor learning and programming without feedback, slow touch and fast pain, gait and gesture.
Note: registration for this Masterclass will be via Zoom
