Efference copies: Context matters when ignoring self-induced motion

Sarah Nicholas, Karin Nordström

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Across the animal kingdom, efference copies of neuronal motor commands are used to ensure our senses ignore stimuli generated by our own actions. New work shows that the underlying motivation for an action affects whether visual neurons are responsive to self-generated stimuli.
