Essential Reading for Perception, Action & Cognition

Make sure that you have read thoroughly all lecture slides and lecture notes (including the Wilkie & Mon-Williams book available for free on Minerva).

There is a great book that you may find useful:

Sensorimotor control and learning : an introduction to the behavioral neuroscience of action, by James Tresilian

In addition the following papers are available via the library and recommended reading for each lecture:
