Intention, Action Planning, and Decision Making in Parietal-Frontal Circuits

  title={Intention, Action Planning, and Decision Making in Parietal-Frontal Circuits},
  author={Richard A. Andersen and He Cui},
The posterior parietal cortex and frontal cortical areas to which it connects are responsible for sensorimotor transformations. This review covers new research on four components of this transformation process: planning, decision making, forward state estimation, and relative-coordinate representations. These sensorimotor functions can be harnessed for neural prosthetic operations by decoding intended goals (planning) and trajectories (forward state estimation) of movements as well as higher… CONTINUE READING
