Bayesian integration in sensorimotor learning

Bayesian integration in sensorimotor learning, Konrad Kording & Daniel Wolpert

This recent (Jan 15) Nature article is some really well done computational neuroscience. Shows that humans are actually doing an accurate Bayesian computation in motor skill learning instead of some simple heuristic estimations. I’m curious as to what CNS circuitry must underlie these abilities.

In the pop sci version, the NYT reports “Subconsciously, Athletes May Play Like Statisticians.”
