Thoughts on sensory attenuation, body state estimation and whole vs part practice

During movement, a predictive signal with information on the consequences of an action is integrated with an afferent signal with actual sensory information triggered by the movement. This helps overcome neural delays and navigate noisy environments. Without brain stim, there are probably two main ways to alter the balance of these two signals, the combining … Continue reading Thoughts on sensory attenuation, body state estimation and whole vs part practice

Papers of interest this week (courtesy of my supervisors): Functional connectivity of SII and cerebellum in sensory attenuation – fMRI and force-matching AI helps inform role of dopa cells in learning – predicted future rewards encoded as probability distribution, not single mean (which got me thinking back to this one) Somatosensory oscillations and tactile attention … Continue reading Briefly…
