Motor Cognition

All cognitive processes are expressed by actions. In turn, complex actions draw upon cognitive functions. Motor cognitive disorders, like apraxia, strongly impair the outcome of stroke patients.

Computational Neurology

The vast majority of motor actions is the result of a complex interplay of various brain regions. In the past decades, brain regions involved in movement generation have been intensively investigated in both animal models as well as in humans.
