The ability to flexibly and adaptively integrate information from a variety of sources is a fundamental feature of brain function, from higher cognition to sensory and motor processing. Even a simple behavior such as reaching to a target relies on the integration of multimodal sensory signals and, moreover, exhibits rapid adaptation in response to changes in these signals. Utilizing the complementary approaches of psychophysics, physiology, and modeling, our research uses goal-directed movements as a model system for understanding these abilities and their underlying neural mechanisms.
