Neural representations of timing for skilled movements

Project summary

Katja is studying the neural encoding of precise timing for skilled movements. Her research aims to connect the underlying neural mechanisms at the systems level in humans and on the single-cell level in mice. As part of her Fellowship, she will investigate how during training, brain regions and populations of Purkinje cells in the cerebellum reorganise functionally, to enable accurate timing of movements. Katja will undertake her work in collaboration with Joern Diedrichsen's laboratory at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Chris De Zeeuw's laboratory at the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam.
