A closer look at how neural circuits control movement
All movements require coordinated actions within space and time. At the heart of that process is the cerebellum, which receives information from the sensory systems, the spinal cord and other parts of the brain and then regulates motor movements. The EU-funded LOCOLEARN project aims to understand how that remarkable coordination is achieved by neural circuits controlling movement. The project will help bridge levels of analysis to understand how cerebellar learning mechanisms convert behaviorally relevant sensorimotor error signals into calibration signals, ensuring accurate and coordinated movements in space and time.
