Everything in motion: How our brains learn to control our bodies – Ferrier Prize Lecture


Attendance type(s): Virtual

Event Dates: 17 Jun 2021

Ferrier Medal and Lecture 2021 given by Professor Daniel Wolpert FMedSci FRS. The effortless ease with which we move our arms, our eyes, even our lips when we speak masks the true complexity of the control processes involved. This is evident when we try to build machines to perform human control tasks. What sets us apart is our ability to learn new motor skills. Daniel Wolpert’s group has studied the computations involved in human motor learning and will describe the incredible computations our brains perform that allow us to acquire our extensive motor repertoire.
