SUMMARY
Do neurons in primary motor cortex encode the gen-
erative details of motor behavior, such as individual
muscle activities, or do they encode high-level move-
ment attributes? Resolving this question has proven
difficult, in large part because of the sizeable uncer-
tainty inherent in estimating or measuring the joint
