LX0776009: Like other primates, we use hands extensively to explore and interact with objects in the environment, guided by sensory information. However, the brain mechanisms underlying this capacity, which is central to our way of life, are poorly understood. This project will be focused on understanding how reaching and grasping movements are encoded in the brain, and how information from the different senses influences these movements. This will be achieved though the study of the electrical responses and anatomical interconnections between brain cells.

Abstract

LX0776009: Like other primates, we use hands extensively to explore and interact with objects in the environment, guided by sensory information. However, the brain mechanisms underlying this capacity, which is central to our way of life, are poorly understood. This project will be focused on understanding how reaching and grasping movements are encoded in the brain, and how information from the different senses influences these movements. This will be achieved though the study of the electrical responses and anatomical interconnections between brain cells. The project will involve the exchange of expertise in new techniques for brain research, which will enhance the international competitiveness of both Australian and Italian laboratories.
