Episode Summary

Workshop/Lecture | Lena Ting | Modularity in Neural Control of Movement

Episode Notes

Neuromechanical principles define the properties and problems that shape neural solutions for movement. Although the theoretical and experimental evidence is debated, I will present arguments for consistent modular structures in motor patterns that are neuromechanical solutions for movement particular to an individual and shaped by evolutionary, developmental, and learning processes.
