Unity Stroke Expert to Speak on “The Neurology of Fitness”

Rochester, N.Y. (April 29, 2011) - Chris Burke, M.D., neurohospitalist and medical director of the Unity Hospital Stroke Center, will discuss “The Neurology of Fitness: This Is Your Brain on Exercise," on Tuesday, May 10, at 7 p.m. at Fleet Feet Sports, 2210 Monroe Ave, in the Town of Pittsford.

Dr. Burke, board certified in neurology, will help to demystify some things which may help individuals maximize their performance. This includes "muscle-memory," an unconscious process where the muscles grow accustomed to certain types of movement which can be extremely important in different types of sports training, and “performance-visualization,” the forming of a mental picture or vision to help change habits, behavior and performance.

The talk is free, open to the public, and no registration is required. For more information, contact Fleet Feet at 585-697-3338.
