In the Motor Behavior Lab we work on the computational basis of biological motor behavior, examining issues ranging from motor control to motor learning and sensorimotor decision making. Employing a normative framework we investigate how the nervous system should optimally, rationally, and efficiently learn and produce behaviors, and then compare these predications with experimental evidence.
