Brain circuits underlying sensorimotor transformations
Sensorimotor transformations are orchestrated across many brain regions to produce adaptive behavior. A chief goal of systems neuroscience is to understand the unique computations and contributions made within this network. This thesis examines the sensorimotor transformations performed by two crucial nodes of the motor system: the cerebellum and superior colliculus (SC). The cerebellum is essential for adaptive learning and predictive motor control. Theoretical work highlighting the structure’s pattern discrimination capacity motivated our analysis of how afferent convergence constructs ...
