During my PhD at SeMoLa I aim at unraveling the neural basis of visuo-motor control and the interactions between the visual and the motor system ni the human brain.
To this aim, I use transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to excite or inhibit different parts of the human brain and test the consequences in the motor system. This approach will allow me to measure cortico-spinal excitability in different experimental conditions and individuate the causative role of specific regions in visuo-motor coordination.
This project will open new venues on visuo-motor control with possible implementations in clinical settings (e.g. stroke).
