„Multisensory Motor Behavior: Impact of Sound“

International conference, Hanover, 30.09.2013 & 01.10.2013

Leading experts in the fields of sports science, rehabilitation, engineering, and neuroscience will highlight the current state and future directions on the following issues:

  • Theoretical frameworks and related experiments: How does auditory movement information shape multisensory representations controlling motor behavior?
  • Technical systems and mapping functions, e.g. sonification: How to generate auditory movement information?
  • Empirical evidence in sports and rehabilitation: How to display movement variables acoustically in order to optimize motor learning and training paradigms?

Invited lectures (given by Prof. Dr. Günther Knoblich, Prof. Dr. Charles Spence, Prof. Dr. Elisabetta Làdavas, Prof. Dr. Stephan Swinnen, Prof. Dr. Gerhard Eckel, Prof. Dr. Roberto Bresin, and Prof. Dr. Marc Ernst), oral presentations, and posters address research in the fields of multisensory motor behavior, perception and cognitive processing of auditory information, sensor technology and auditory displays, and efficiency of auditory and multisensory feedback. A special focus will be given to hands-on demos of movement sonification.
