Ontology type: npg:Subject  | skos:Concept     


Concept Info

NAME

Motor control

DESCRIPTION

Motor control refers to the process by which the nervous system coordinates the muscle and limbs to achieve a desired movement or set of actions. This includes the ability to anticipate, adjust and respond to deviations from the desired action.

40 skos:definition The basal ganglia are a set of subcortical structures that interact with the cerebral cortex to regulate motor, cognitive and affective function through reinforcement learning and action selection. Its input structure, the striatum, receives a dense dopaminergic input that is critical for reinforcement learning and whose dysfunction contributes to motor and cognitive pathologies.

70 skos:definition The cerebellum is part of the hindbrain that is located below the temporal and occipital lobes of the cerebral cortex. It consists of a thin, densely folded cerebellar cortex surrounding the deep cerebellar nuclei. It has important roles in motor control and motor learning, and also non-motor functions in language, cognitive processing and emotion.
