Sensorimotor learning under switching dynamics

James Barry Heald
Humans have a remarkable capacity to learn new motor behaviours without forgetting old ones. This capacity relies on the ability to acquire and express multiple motor memories without interference. Here we combine behavioural experiments and computational modelling to investigate how the sensorimotor system uses contextual information to create, update and recall motor memories. We first examine the role of muscle co-contraction in the learning of novel movement dynamics. We show that muscle co-contraction, as measured...
