PMID-19923243 Complex Spatiotemporal Tuning in Human Upper-Limb Muscles

  • Original idea: M1 neurons encode 'pathlets', sophisticated high-level movement trajectories, possibly through the action of both the musculoskeletal system and spinal cord circuitry.
  • Showed that muscle pathlets can be extracted from EMG data, relkiably and between patients, implying that M1 reflects 'filter-like' properties of the body, and not high level representations.

PMID-10725914 Population vectors and motor cortex: neural coding or epiphenomenon?

  • Basic friendly editorial of {950}.
  • On the PV method: "These correlations have been interpreted as suggesting that the motor cortex controls higher-level features of hand movements, rather than the lower-level features related to the individual joints and muscles that bring about those movements"
  • Implies that conversion of the relatively abstract representation to the concrete muscle activations would be done by the spinal cord.
    • This in turn implies that the spinal cord is capable of organizatonal-level learning, or that gross properties are genetically / developmentally encoded.
  • On Schwartz's drawing experiments: [The variable latency for the correlation of the PV tuning and arm motion] was interpreted that motor cortex is involved in controlling movements with high curvature, but not relatively straight movements.
  • Nice: "Engineers have to understand the plant before they can figure out how to control it. Why should it be any different when examining biological control?"

PMID-11600665[] Neural Activity in Primary Motor Cortex Related to Mechanical Loads Applied to the Shoulder and Elbow During a Postural Task

  • experiment w/ the kinarm. w/ Stephen Scott.
  • roughly equal numbers of neuons responsive to mechanical loads on shoulder, elbow, and both.
  • neural activity is also strongly influenced by the specific motor patterns used to perform a given task.
