Third International Motor Impairment Conference

Event Dates: 20-22 November 2023

Sydney, Australia

TIMIC 2023 Poster

The goal of these meetings is to better understand the pathophysiology of Motor Impairment, to implement interventions, and to drive enhanced clinical practice.  Much is still unknown about fundamental mechanisms of Motor Impairment, and about its prevention and treatment.

We are planning ~9 sessions of talks spread out over 3 days. Our invited speakers have agreed to present talks on: Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, ALS, respiratory motor impairment, motoneurons and fatigue, balance and falls, vestibular function, aging and motor impairment and more!

There will also be plenty of time to socialise with an afternoon off to explore Sydney and a very special dinner overlooking Sydney Harbour at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Submissions for this year’s competition are now closed. We would like to thank all the creative minds who have contributed to our exploration of the brain, nervous system, philosophy of mind, cognition, and perception through various forms of artistic expression. We have received an impressive array of art installations, drawings, digital media, renderings, movies, poems, interactive art, and more.

Our esteemed jury panel will now review the submissions and select one winner and four honorable mentions. The winners will receive prizes of €1000 and €250, respectively, and will be featured prominently on our website and in a Scientific American featured article

The secret theme of this year’s Art of Neuroscience competition, “ARTifical”, explores the intersection of art and AI, and the changing view of what the value and creation of art is in this emerging world. The competition allowed for artists to use AI systems, whether they were created by humans, AI, or a combination of both, in response to this theme. The submitted artworks represented a diverse range of perspectives and creative approaches, providing a thought-provoking reflection on the impact of AI on the art world.

We are thrilled to announce that the AON 2023 Award Ceremony will be held on June 22nd 2023 at the Art of Neuroscience Seminar: ARTifical, with Eva Cetinic, Friendred Peng, Florian Schmidt and moderated by Chris Julian. Taking place at the Singelkerk in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The event promises to be a remarkable celebration of art and science, featuring an art exhibition, guest speakers, and panel discussions. Join us for an unforgettable evening of artistic exploration and inspiration.
