Abstract

Visuomotor integration is the process of using visual information to plan and control motor actions with different parts of the body. It requires sophisticated computations to transform information between various coordinate frames and to update actions based on sensory feedback. A large number of brain areas, including the posterior parietal cortex and premotor cortex, along with numerous subcortical structures, are involved in visuomotor integration.
