Abstract

Despite a long history of interrogation, the functional organization of motor cortex remains obscure. A major barrier has been the inability to measure and perturb activity with sufficient resolution to reveal clear functional elements within motor cortex and its associated circuits. Increasingly, the mouse has been employed as a model to facilitate application of contemporary approaches with the potential to surmount this barrier. In this brief essay, we consider these approaches and their use in the context of studies aimed at resolving the logic of motor cortical operation.
