Amy Bastian, DASER event, April 21, 2011
DC Art Science Evening Rendezvous (DASER), April 21, 2011 held at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington DC. 1 of 6 videos.

Neural Control of Human Movement
Movement of the human body is incredibly complex—over 600 muscles control the motions of limbs, trunk, head, and eyes. Yet, in health, the nervous system accomplishes this with incredible precision and speed, and in a remarkably effortless manner. Bastian will discuss research in her laboratory addressing some of the challenges that the human nervous faces in movement control, how it overcomes them, and the effects of specific types of brain damage.

Amy Bastian is the Director of the Motion Analysis Laboratory at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. She is also an Associate Professor of Neurology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. After completing her undergraduate degree in Physical Therapy at the University of Oklahoma, Bastian completed a Ph.D. in Movement Science at Washington University in 1995, and a postdoctoral fellowship in Neuroscience at Washington University under Dr. W.T. Thach. Most recently, she was an Assistant Professor in Physical Therapy and the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She came to the Kennedy Krieger Institute in the summer of 2001.
