Action

Mechanisms of stability and transition are central to effective action and interaction. We must constantly adjust our motor system to achieve stable, goal-directed interactions with the outside world. Here, we use motor control as a particularly rich system for probing adaptation processes. This allows us to investigate how the other Key Areas are affected when the individual is coupled to the environment.
