Biological motor control is characterized by high levels of flexibility, adaptivity and coordination. Hundreds of skeletal muscles and numerous degrees of freedom of associated joints are controlled and coordinated with apparent ease by the central nervous system, an organ with billions of cells that work together to produce adequate motor output. As of yet humans vastly surpass the movement abilities of any man-made robot and scientists only scarcely understand how the brain achieves these unique human faculties. This workshop brings together experts from various fields of motor control, ranging from neurophysiology and -anatomy in rodents and human/non-human primates over computational motor control to neuronal network modelling to present and discuss recent progress in unravelling the computational and neural mechanisms of biological motor control.
