Motor Control:
Spinal Circuits and Beyond

June 20-23, 2023
University of St Andrews

This conference aims to bring together researchers working on circuits for motor control, including those of the spinal cord, brainstem, and invertebrate systems.

The meeting will be held June 20-23, 2023 at the University of St. Andrews in the beautiful medieval Scottish town of St. Andrews. The conference will feature a wide variety of speakers, poster sessions, and (weather permitting!) opportunities to experience the great Scottish outdoors (e.g. bonfire at a beach, hiking a hill, or ‘spoiling a walk’ chasing a wee white ball).

We look forward to seeing you in Scotland in 2023!
