Sir Charles Sherrington Prize Lecture: Neuronal circuits for body movements

To be followed by a reception in the Sherrington Reception Foyer

Movement is the behavioural output of the nervous system. This lecture will focus on recent work elucidating the organization and function of neuronal circuits central to the regulation of distinct forms of body movements, including locomotion and skilled forelimb movements. It will show that dedicated circuit modules in different regions of the brainstem and their interactions within the motor system play key roles in the generation of diverse actions.
