Neuromuscular Plasticity Nines Sign up:

Presentations on research projects at any stage of completion are welcome, although first priority is given to graduate students who are more advanced in their program of study. Talks should be self-contained. They should begin with a brief statement of the overall research objectives and why they are important and should include methods, results, and conclusions. They may include future directions and ask for feedback on specific issues or on the research design.


• To enhance interdisciplinary education related to basic and translational aspects of the full scope of basic and clinical behavioral and neurosciences.
• To facilitate interchange, understanding, and collaboration among University of Florida laboratories investigating different aspects of neuromuscular plasticity.
