When planning goal-directed arm movements the sensorimotor system needs to integrate the current behavioral context with given spatial constraints to define and maintain motor-goals. We are interested in how this integration is achieved within the sensorimotor network. Specifically we tested the respective roles of the dorsal premotor cortex (PMd) and the parietal reach region (PRR) in defining and planning context-specific reach goals.
