Math that powers spam filters used to understand how brain learns to move our muscles

...rner’s speed and pattern in adapting its movements matched the experimental results of the monkeys almost perfectly. “We found that this Bayesian model can explain almost all of the phenomena we observe in regard to learning motor movements,” says Shadmehr. Beyond possible use in helping stroke patients,...
