Karel Svoboda - Neural circuits and mechanisms underlying planning and movement - 23.9.22
|Rome’s Distinguished Visitor Lecture scheduled for this Friday 23rd September 2022 at 10:00 CEST (9:00 BST).
Motor planning is a short-term memory, that links past sensation and future actions. Slow dynamics in neural populations underlies motor planning. We study the neural mechanisms and computational principles underlying motor planning-related activity, and how planning is terminated to trigger a movement. We also explore how learning might shape motor planning-related neural activity in the motor cortex.
