Cortex-dependent corrections as the tongue moves

In this webinar, we join Brendan Ito and Teja Bollu who break new-ground in their exciting collaboration exploring real-time motor control using the mouse tongue as a novel model system. With the aid of high-speed videography, tongue movement dynamics can be extracted and related to ongoing activity in the anterolateral motor cortex (ALM) during targeted licking and during perturbations evoked by photoinhibition in the ALM, revealing that ALM activity exhibits performance-related signals necessary for online motor corrections in tongue trajectory.
