“Neural Mechanisms of Movement Precision”
How the brain makes movements fast, smooth and accurate has remained a mystery. In this talk I will discuss our studies identifying predictive, adaptively scaled activity in a cerebellar output structure that causally controls limb velocity to enhance movement precision. The data have implications into the fundamental algorithms of the cerebellum and suggest loci for interventions in motor disorders.
