Decomposition of a sensory prediction error signal for visuomotor adaptation

Published in:┬áJournal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, Volume 44, Issue 2, 176-194 Abstract “To accomplish effective motor control, the brain contains an internal forward model that predicts the expected sensory consequence of a motor command. When this prediction is inaccurate, a sensory prediction error is produced which adapts the forward model to make more accurate predictions of future movements. Other types of errors, such as task performance errors or reward, play less of a role in adapting a forward model. This raises the following question: What unique information is conveyed by the sensory prediction error that results in… Read More
