Dr Nadia Cerminara

Sensorimotor processing and movement control

My overall research interest has been to understand the neural mechanisms that underlie the role of the control of movement. This includes the role of the cerebellum, motor cortex and basal ganglia. Using an in vivo systems level approach, a key aim of my work is to determine the sensorimotor information processing that occurs in motor circuits during the performance of both well-rehearsed movements and during motor learning/adaptation.
