Our research focuses on the behavioral neuroscience of motor control. We use non-invasive human brain mapping techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) to study the contribution of the motor system to different aspects of motor control and motor learning.
The different lines of research involve elucidating:
- the physiological mechanisms mediating motor learning in predictable and unpredictable contexts;
- the role of prediction in the adjustment of executed and observed actions;
- the relationship between functional and structural changes associated with motor skill acquisition.
