Neural and Computational Models of Adaptive Movement Planning and Control

CAS CN 540

Neural models of eye, arm, hand, orofacial, and leg movements are presented and compared to reveal general organizational principles and specialized neural circuit designs for motor learning and performance. Issues include trajectory formation, synchronization of synergists, variable velocity control, adaptive gain control, map formation, load compensation, serial order, and inflow versus outflow as sources of sensory-motor information.
