Abstract
Proper communications between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems is important for movement organization using feedback and feedforward control. If these communications are disrupted by peripheral nerve injury or neuropathy, spinal cord injury, etc., the patient encounters difficulties with control of movement. These difficulties potentially could be overcome with the use of prosthetic devices that provide communication channels between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. The prosthetic devices modulate motor commands and/or sensory feedback, based on neural signal and sensor inputs. In this talk, I will discuss the development of neuroprostheses integrated with the body and their potential for enhancements of rehabilitative outcomes and augmentations of human abilities.

About the Speaker
Hangue Park is currently an assistant professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University. He is also affiliated with the Texas A&M Institute for Neuroscience, Institute for Rehabilitation and Research (TIRR) Foundation, and Texas Brain & Spine Institute, as a research faculty. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, in 2017. Before joining Georgia Tech, he received B.S. and M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, in 2006 and 2008, respectively. He also has 5+ years of industrial experience at multiple companies including Samsung Electronics. He is a recipient of the Trainee Professional Development Award from Society for Neuroscience in 2017, the Outstanding Research Award from the Association of Korean Neuroscientists in 2016, and the Best Demonstration Award at the IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference in 2012.

Museum of Comparative Zoology
Harvard University
Howard Hughes Medical Institute

About the Speaker
Hopi Hoekstra is studying the ultimate and proximate mechanisms responsible for traits that matter for the survival and reproduction of organisms in their natural environments. She uses wild and captive populations of deer mice to track down genetic changes that contribute to variation in morphology, reproduction and behavior. This work has implications for understanding the evolutionary process and may shed light on the genetic origins of variation in other species, including humans.

ASM’s Southeastern Branch will hold its 104th Annual Meeting from November 30 to December 02 on the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta.  The theme of the meeting is Microbial Dynamics and Infection. The Southeastern states, and the Atlanta area in particular, are a hotbed for microbial science and the study of microbe-microbe interactions for questions of both human and ecosystem health.  The conference will highlight this theme, focusing specifically on topics of infection and microbial dynamics in human-affected environments.  

 

Session Topics

 
  • Microbes and hosts
  • Evolutionary dynamics
  • Molecular biology of microbes
  • Viral pathogenesis
  • Bacterial physiology and metabolism
  • Antimicrobial resistance
  • Climate change and microbial ecology
  • Modeling microbial communities
