|PREDICTIVE SENSORY MOTOR LABORATORY|
PRISM Predictive Sensory Motor Lab
Lab is part of the Behavioural
Centre. We are working on
sensory-motor control, motor learning, coordination and
cognition. The main thrust of our work is to look at the
processes in the
human motor system. This word cloud is from the titles
of some of our
recent published papers.
currently working on include, for example, motor
perturbed or displaced visual feedback of
position. We are
testing the role of learning in motor coordination tasks
brain imaging. We
are studying the questions of short and longer
timing in motor control - the intermittent
corrections of position or the longer term control of
movements in time
with events in the environment. We also look at
aspects of sensory-motor interactions, such as
include motor psychophysics in laboratory and
virtual reality environments, functional MR brain
imaging, EEG and EMG
recording, and TMS - magnetic stimulation of the brain.
have been using MEG recording, in
MEG Unit at Aston University.
Some of our recent work has looked at higher aspects of motor control and cognition, including predictive language processing, mental arithmetic & executive function, action acquisition & exploration, inter-personal interference effects drawing and copying portraits, tool use and deafferentation.
