Bimanual coordination
Psychophysical research has provided interesting findings about the nature of bimanual coordination in humans.

Brain Machine Interface
This project aims at developing motor neural prostheses in a coordinated effort of experimental and theoretical approaches, combining psychophysical experiments on human subjects, neurophysiological recordings in behaving monkeys, advanced data analysis and modeling work.For details see metacomp.huj
Dynamics of neuronal interactions in cortex
The notion that cortical function is mediated coherent firing in groups of neurons escorts scientific endeavors since James (1890) and Hebb (1949).

Sensorimotor learning
During performance of guided movements, the brain has to transform sensory information (for example – location of a cup of coffee) into appropriate motor commands (reach and grasp movement towards the cup).
