Professor Miall’s research focuses on motor learning and motor coordination, usually in visually guided actions (such as tracking of moving objects, or using a computer mouse). Much of his recent work has been directed towards questions of predictive knowledge and predictive control, and how these issues reflect on the use of 'internal models' in the nervous system. His team are using tests of human motor psychophysics, with functional MRI and TMS as brain mapping techniques.
He iis current funded by:
- Wellcome Trust programme grant
- EU FP7-ITN & FP7-STREP
- Royal Society grants
