New insights into motor cortex

Neuron. 2011 Aug 11;71(3):387-8. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2011.07.014.


An exciting new experiment on the motor cortex of monkeys, by Shenoy and colleagues, begins to elucidate how the neuronal ensemble travels in a systematic fashion through state space. This trajectory through state space may help to explain how the motor cortex sets up and then triggers arm movements.
