Project B02

Neural network maturation underlying top-down motor control and movement initiation in childhood and adolescence

Project B02 investigates motor network maturation in children and adolescents. Multi-channel EEG source localisation, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and functional magnetic resonance imaging will be used to unravel how emerging frontal cortical activation accomplishes improved motor control and how disturbed maturation leads to involuntary tic movements.
