How do recurrently connected neural populations generate outgoing motor commands?
How are the different contributions of different cortical motor areas reflected in their dynamics?
We experienced beautiful fall weather, excellent talks and even better discussion. Many thanks to the fantastic group of participants and to our gracious hosts Sandy and Naava.
We have named Karen Schroeder our first Grossman Fellow. Karen is developing and implementing novel decode methods for controlling neuro-motor BMI devices. Karen is an engineer by training and works closely with BME graduate student Sean Perkins. They have been getting remarkable real-time performance from a BMI that converts rhythmic activity in motor cortex into motion through a virtual environment.
