Alan Wing is interested in anticipatory aspects of human movement control. An important goal of his research is to understand how the brain uses sensory input to develop and maintain accurate representations (internal models) for adaptive planning and control of movement. When an action is imagined, there is a feeling of it taking place which has a distinct time course; indeed it has been shown that the duration of imagined action is very similar to the corresponding real movement. It is conceivable that internal models which underlie overt movement contribute to imagining movement, and his current research asks whether imagined movement evolves in parallel with sensory-induced changes in internal models.
