Here is the second set of readings for our MN course, These are the early empirical demonstrations of MN in the monkey. We are bit behind schedule because (i) I was out of town last week, and (ii) the CNS meeting this week. Our plan is to discuss the MN review paper (Reading Set #1), and the papers below next week. I will post a discussion summary of the Motor Theory of Speech Perception shortly.
