Based on existing data, we wish to put forward a biological model of motor system on the neuron scale. Then we indicate its implications in statistics and learning. Specifically, neuron’s firing frequency and synaptic strength are probability estimates in essence. And the lateral inhibition also has statistical implications. From the standpoint of learning, dendritic competition through retrograde messengers is the foundation of conditional reflex and “grandmother cell” coding. And they are the…

Neural Mechanism of Language
TLDR
The gap between molecule mechanism of neurons and advanced functions such as language and reasoning is bridged and it is found that the position of an area determines its importance.
Title : How Consciousness Emerges from Ions
TLDR
The neural mechanism correlative with consciousness is discussed, namely what happens when you think of an object, and it is found that neural mechanisms in the spatial and temporal dimensionalities follow similar statistical laws.

A Quantitative Neural Coding Model of Sensory Memory
TLDR
A quantitative neural network model, which is self-organized, self-similar, and self-adaptive, just like an ecosystem following Darwin's theory, is put forward, which can reconcile some important disputations and provided explanations for some key questions such as memory consolidation, episodic memory, consciousness, and sentiment.
Generalization in vision and motor control
TLDR
This work proposes a specific architecture for generalization for both the motor and the visual systems, and argues for a canonical microcircuit underlying visual and motor learning.
Relating neural dynamics to neural coding.
We demonstrate that two key theoretical objects used widely in computational neuroscience, the phase-resetting curve (PRC) from dynamics and the spike triggered average (STA) from statistical
Regulation of Synaptic Efficacy by Coincidence of Postsynaptic APs and EPSPs
TLDR
In dual whole-cell voltage recordings from pyramidal neurons, the coincidence of post Synaptic action potentials and unitary excitatory postsynaptic potentials was found to induce changes in EPSPs.

Role for cingulate motor area cells in voluntary movement selection based on reward.
TLDR
It is suggested that cells in the rostral cingulate motor area, one of the higher order motor areas in the cortex, play a part in processing the reward information for motor selection.
An internal model for sensorimotor integration.
TLDR
A sensorimotor integration task was investigated in which participants estimated the location of one of their hands at the end of movements made in the dark and under externally imposed forces, providing direct support for the existence of an internal model.
