Spatially organized recruitment of neural activity across the motor cortex informs details of planned movements.
Study reveals how motor memory is consolidated during sleep.
New findings about neural activity in the sensorimotor cortex may aid in the development of neuroprosthetics to help compensate for neuronal dysfunctions.
The anterior lateral motor cortex, an area of the brain associated with action planning, plays a major role in premature actions such as when a person "jumps the gun", or starts to run before a race starts.
Researchers reveal how the anterior cingulate cortex and motor cortex collaborate to update behaviors when adding a new step to an established task.
The brain naturally implements principles of calculus and integrated learned rules of life with sensory information to guide motor plans and actions.
Data collected from a tetraplegic man learning a BCI to play Simon showed the brain replays the learned information during sleep.
Researchers have identified a neural network that connects the legs to the visual system in order to shape walking.
The primary motor and primary somatosensory areas of the brain are involved in controlling immediate motor movements in real-time, while the premotor area appears to control planned, sequential movements as well as reacting to and adjusting the sequence when faced with unexpected changes.
