(p.167) Chapter 11 Feedback Remapping and the Cortical-Spinal-Muscular System
The Intelligent Movement Machine

Michael S. A. Graziano

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by describing some previously proposed models of the neuronal control of movement. These models include the λ model and the hypothesis of muscle synergies. The chapter then discusses the usefulness of higher-order sources of information about the periphery such as visual feedback and internally generated models of the body. The chapter ends with a schematic version of the cortical-spinal-muscle system and a discussion of how electrical stimulation in cortex is likely to affect this circuitry and result in complex movement.

Keywords:   neuronal control, movement, feedback control, movement control, electrical stimulation
