Brief description This project aims to unravel how the brain guides the hand to interact with objects in diverse ways, a topic that is poorly understood. We will use fMRI to find active brain areas during object grasps, & then use non-invasive brain stimulation to briefly “shut off” some of these areas, & then identify changes in grasping & previously active brain areas. Insight from this project on the neural bases of diverse hand-object interactions will speed up important work aimed at improving hand function.
