Everything in motion: How our brains learn to control our bodies

17 June 2021
18:30 – 19:30 GMT+1

Ferrier Lecture 2021 given by Professor Daniel Wolpert FMedSci FRS

The effortless ease with which we move our arms, our eyes, even our lips when we speak masks the true complexity of the control processes involved. This is evident when we try to build machines to perform human control tasks.  What sets us apart is our ability to learn new motor skills. Daniel Wolpert’s group has studied the computations involved in human motor learning and will describe the incredible computations our brains perform that allow us to acquire our extensive motor repertoire. 


This lecture will be broadcast live on Zoom Webinar on 17 June 2021 at 6.30pm BST. The event will be recorded (including the live Q&A) and the recording will be available on YouTube soon after the event.

The event is free to join. Advance registration required.
