Neuro-X seminar: Prof Jorn Diedrichsen, Controlling the present while planning the future: How the brain learns and produces fast motor sequences.
Motor sequencing is one of the fundamental components of human motor skill. In this talk I will show evidence that the fast and smooth production of motor sequences relies on the ability to plan upcoming movements while simultaneously controlling the ongoing movement. I will argue that this ability relies heavily on planning-related areas in premotor and parietal cortex.
