“Give a small boy a hammer, and he will find that everything he encounters needs pounding” (Abraham Kaplan, 1964).

“This presentation will revisit some of the alarming trends, of conceptual and methodological nature, that I have observed over the last decade in the field of adapted motor control research.  These topics are very broad and by no means novel. However, revisiting them may be beneficial to the development of critical thinking among upcoming generation of young researchers and health care professionals working with different atypically functioning populations.”
