Unresolved questions in motor control:

A joint University College London - Johns Hopkins University workshop

(20th and 21st April 2012)

The workshop is funded through a BBSRC partnering grant (Bestmann/Diedrichsen) “Establishing a trans-atlantic partnership for studying the neural networks for motor skill learning in the human brain”. The workshop will promote collaboration between the Institute of Movement Neuroscience (IMN) at UCL and the Motor Control research group located at Johns Hopkins University, USA.
