The Intelligent Movement Machine

This chapter summarizes electrical stimulation studies in the macaque motor cortex, in which stimulation on a behaviorally relevant time scale evoked complex movements that resembled behaviorally meaningful actions. It begins with a brief summary of methods followed by a summary of two sets of findings: first the quantitative profile of the evoked arm and hand movements, and second the manner in which evoked movements resemble actions in a monkey's natural behavioral repertoire. The chapter ends with a review of other experiments using similar stimulation techniques to study motor areas in a range of animal species.

Keywords:   macaques, motor cortex, stimulation, arm movements, hand movements
