Sensory and motor systems

Project Details


Fundamental functions of the brain are to perceive the world (including our own bodies) and to act on the world. To this end, much of the brain is taken up by sensory systems, which include vision, touch and taste; and motor systems, which control the muscles.

Our researchers are investigating the mechanisms of sensory and motor function using cutting edge approaches using electrophysiology, imaging and computational modelling.

The aim is primarily to seek fundamental insight into how the sensory and motor systems operate but also to translate such insights into treatments for conditions including blindness and epilepsy.
