Sensorimotor control
"Rochelle Ackerley"

I work on the role of skin afferents in sensorimotor processes with Dr's Håkan Olausson and Johan Wessberg, at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. We use single-unit microneurography, where we record from peripheral nerves in the human. I have previously worked on prediction in eye and head movements with Prof Graham R. Barnes at the University of Manchester, UK and my PhD was on sensorimotor inputs to the cerebellum with Prof Richard Apps at the University of Bristol, UK.
