Abstract

Sensory input shapes and refines motor performance. It also modulates, on both a short- and long-term basis, the neural circuitry underlying motor performance. Evidence suggests that electrical stimulation can be used to mimic these modulatory effects on neural circuitry, perhaps providing a tool to influence motor function in both able-bodied individuals and those with motor dysfunction caused by neurological injury.
