Colloquium by Prof. Dr. Roy Mukamel, Tel-Aviv University
Successful performance of a goal-directed action requires correct mapping
between the performed action, and its expected consequences in the environment.
However, this mapping is non-trivial given that depending on context, similar actions
(and corresponding motor commands) can result in different outcomes, and similar
outcomes can be achieved by completely different actions.
In my talk I will describe behavioral and neuroimaging data demonstrating bi-directional interactions by which
actions shape our perception, and how expected sensory consequences shape the
kinetics of the triggering action. Finally, I will discuss how such results may hold
clinical relevance for harnessing the motor system for perceptual rehabilitation.
