2015 McGovern Symposium: Marc Sommer

In this video, Marc Sommer of Duke University delivers his lecture, “Neuronal Circuits for Seeing While Moving,” at the McGovern Institute annual symposium on Monday April 27, 2015.

Theories of motor control have advanced the idea that the brain uses internal models to generate reliable motor commands and predict the sensory consequences of those commands. At this symposium, ten speakers explored the recent advances in the study of internal models in perception, cognition and action, and discussed the extent to which they reveal the common computational principles across neural circuits and behaviors.
