A Festschrift Commemorating The Work of Dr. Stephan P. Swinnen

This special issue is to commemorate the scientific contributions of Stephan P. Swinnen. He retires this year from his position as Director of Movement Control and Neuroplasticity Research Group at Katholieke Universiteit of Leuven in Belgium. Dr. Swinnen has led a multidisciplinary, international team of scientists and has continually adopted a diverse range of biomedical imaging techniques. His work has led to a greater understanding of how the brain coordinates complex movement. His research on interlimb coordination in both healthy and pathological states has led to important advancements in the field of movement neuroscience. From the start of his formal training in motor control at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), under the direction of Prof. R. A. Schmidt (1983-1985), he has investigated the role of feedback in motor skill acquisition. To celebrate his achievements, you are invited to submit original research articles, theoretical papers and brief reviews that have been influenced, either directly or indirectly, by his contributions to the field.
