Topic: The relationship between somatosensory and motor function in typically and atypically developing children.

Time: 02:00 pm – 04:00 pm

Date: 17th.september.2019
Location: Science Building #4, S4-209, NCU (中央大學科四館209室)

A distinguish seminar was held dated on 17th.september.2019 at the department of Cognitive neuroscience, which was attended together by students of Cognitive Neuroscience NCU as well as students of Yang Ming University. The distinguished guest speaker of the seminar was Dr. Yu-Ting Tseng, a post-doctoral research fellow at the Institute of Population Health Sciences, National Health Research Institute. She also was working as an assistant professor at the department of Physical education, National Tsing-Hwa University, Taiwan. She welcomed the participants and presented an interesting topic “The relationship between somatosensory and motor function in typically and atypically developing children” to all.

Prof. Yu-Ting Tseng presented an interesting topic in the domain of somatosensory and motor function in typical and atypical children. The findings she shared were of high interest for the participants. Somatosensory function plays an important role in motor control and movement coordination. Specific motor skill training improves somatosensory and motor function. While, the loss of this function significantly impact a person’s quality of life across developmental stages. She also shared her current research direction and different findings of her current and previous research. She shared her views about the sub modalities of somatosensory system i.e. how proprioception and haptic perception can be affected and how they are related to motor dysfunction.

Furthermore, children with DCD showed both proprioceptive and haptic abnormalities. Finally, she discussed the improvements of perceptual and motor function in children and healthy adults. The seminar was ended with a Question and Answering session, in which the students showed interests about her talk by asking more questions. In the post-seminar session she shared her life experiences, challenges and journey of PhD abroad and clears all queries of the participants in detail.
