The modularity of action control in the nervous system


  • Dr Daniel McNamee

    University of Cambridge

Project summary

Daniel will use a range of experimental paradigms such as sensorimotor control, psychophysics and sequential decision-making, in concert with the analysis of neural data obtained via functional magnetic resonance imaging and electrophysiology, in order to investigate the compositional structure of action at multiple levels of the control hierarchy. This research will be performed in collaboration with Professor Daniel Wolpert and Dr Máté Lengyel (University of Cambridge), Professor Samuel Gershman (Harvard University) and Professor Peter Dayan (UCL).
