The fellow will be involved in the design, execution and analysis of behavioural and brain imaging (fMRI) experiments on healthy human adults to investigate the brain’s use of sensory and motor information for state estimation during voluntary actions. The research will involve combining behavioural, brain imaging and MR-compatible robotics techniques to study the neural basis of state estimation, and the roles of parietal cortex and cerebellum to this process.

The work will require regular coordination and interaction with other researchers working with the “C7: Cerebellar-Cortical Control: Cells, Circuits, Computation and Clinic” Initial Training Network, and can involve periods of work with the other project partners (
