Scientists discover brain area that controls ability to correct movement after being hit or bumped.

The fact that humans rapidly correct for any disturbance in motion demonstrates the brain understands the physics of the limb – scientists just didn’t know what part of the brain supported this feedback response – until now. Researchers have discovered that the pathway through the primary motor cortex provides this knowledge of the physics of the limb… implications for stroke patients.
