Sensory-motor pathways controlling voluntary movements in health and disease

Project A06 investigates the interactions between the motor cortex and sensory afferents during normal and pathological motor behaviour using a reversible model of cerebellar ataxia in monkeys. Invasive simultaneous recordings from the motor cortex, somatosensory cortex, and corresponding thalamic nuclei during multi-joint reaching tasks with different perturbations of information flow through these pathways will complement theoretical network models predicting electrophysiological effects and behavioural changes.
