Abstract: The long-term objective of this project is to develop a corticospinal model that integrates sensory information for volitional movement tasks that can capture the cortical and spinal-level contributions in motor control. 

This project will build the first corticospinal computer model that can capture both cortical and spinal level motor contributions modified by neuromodulation (tDCS and TMS).
