Profile

In the motor control group, we are studying how the brain learns to produce skilful movements. What are the computational principles that underlie the control and learning of these movements? Which brain areas are involved? How does the brain compensate after damage? We are using a combination of behavioral experiments in humans, functional imaging, and brain stimulation. A special focus of our group is the use of computational models to link these levels in a theory-driven manner.
