    A synergy-based hand control is encoded in human motor cortical areas

    Andrea Leo et al.
    The human brain encodes coordinated patterns of joint movements – synergies – to increase the efficiency with which it can control complex hand movements.

    Corticostriatal dynamics encode the refinement of specific behavioral variability during skill learning

    Fernando J Santos et al.
    Recordings from the mouse brain as animals learn a lever pressing task reveal how the motor system optimizes skill learning by reducing variability in those aspects of task performance that are essential for achieving a goal.

    Electrocorticographic dissociation of alpha and beta rhythmic activity in the human sensorimotor system

    Arjen Stolk et al.
    Direct cortical recordings in humans link the spectral structure of local field potentials to inhibition/disinhibition mechanisms coordinating sensorimotor neuronal populations during movement imagery.

    Object vision to hand action in macaque parietal, premotor, and motor cortices

    Stefan Schaffelhofer, Hansjörg Scherberger
    The cortical grasping circuit separates but shares visual and motor processes to transform object attributes into appropriate hand movements.

    mTORC1 in the orbitofrontal cortex promotes habitual alcohol seeking

    Nadege Morisot et al.
    In the orbitofrontal cortex, mTORC1, a multiprotein complex centered around the kinase mTOR, contributes to the development and/or maintenance of habitual alcohol seeking.

    Functional clustering of dendritic activity during decision-making

    Aaron Kerlin et al.
    In motor cortex pyramidal neurons, diverse task-related signals are distributed throughout the dendritic arbor and compartmentalized by dendritic distance and branching.

    Inferring eye position from populations of lateral intraparietal neurons

    Arnulf BA Graf, Richard A Andersen
    An area of visual-motor cortex called the lateral intraparietal area encodes eye position signals that support visually-guided behaviors and image stabilization.

    Impact of precisely-timed inhibition of gustatory cortex on taste behavior depends on single-trial ensemble dynamics

    Narendra Mukherjee et al.
    Primary taste cortex does far more than code tastes by turning taste codes into motor commands via population dynamics.

    Induced sensorimotor cortex plasticity remediates chronic treatment-resistant visual neglect

    Jacinta O'Shea et al.
    Tonic disinhibition of left motor cortex during prism adaptation enhanced consolidation of sensorimotor and cognitive prism after effects, causing lasting clinical gains in three patient cases with chronic treatment-resistant visual neglect.

    Inhibition of protein synthesis in M1 of monkeys disrupts performance of sequential movements guided by memory

    Machiko Ohbayashi
    Inhibition of protein synthesis in primary motor cortex (M1) of monkeys disrupted the performance of skilled sequential movements suggesting that M1 is involved in maintenance of skilled sequential movements.
