Congratulations to the winners of the 3rd ISB-sponsored Motor Control Group Student Award: Ms. Lea-Fedia Rissmann, Master's student in the Sport & Exercise Science for Health and Performance program at the Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany), and Mr. Matthew Slopecki, Ph.D. student in the Biomechanics of Occupation and Sport Laboratory in the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education at McGill University (Canada).  The winners were awarded the 2021 Motor Control Group Student Award for their abstract submissions “Corticospinal excitability during and after stretch-shortening cycle contractions compared with pure shortening contractions” and “Uncontrolled manifold analysis of effects of different fatigue locations on coordination during a repetitive pointing task”, respectively. For more details, see

This is the third edition of the Motor Control Group Student Award sponsored by ISB. The 250 US $ award aims at encouraging the participation of students and young investigators in Motor Control research.

We look forward to meeting again in 2022, whether in person or virtually, to talk about Motor Control in various areas and applications of Biomechanics.  Check our website for updates!
