Nijmengen conference

Next summer (July 7th-10th 2006), there is a conference in Nijmengen on speech motor control. The conference is not directly focused on PDS, but on ordered and disordered speech motor control. Thus PDS traditionally is a part of the discussion, but I think over the last years there has been a realization that disordered speech motor control is more of a symptom that the cause itself. Thus, people with PDS can have normal speech motor control at times, but often it breaks down. They will also talk about brain imaging and genetics.

Thus, this should be an interesting conference for the hard-core scientists. I will see... Maybe I might attend myself, if the conference fees are low or they waiver them for an hobby researcher... lets see...
