Motor cortex needed for sensory-guided control of movement
Motor cortex needed for sensory-guided control of movement
In a collaboration, Matthias Heindorf (FMI/Biozentrum), Silvia Arber (FMI/Biozentrum), and Georg Keller (FMI) investigated the role of motor cortex in the control of movement. Their study - published in ‘Neuron' today - demonstrates that motor cortex is necessary for the execution of corrective movements in response to unexpected changes of sensory input but not when the same movements are executed spontaneously.
