    © 2019 IEEE. Current knowledge of coordinated motor control of multiple muscles is derived primarily from invasive stimulation-recording techniques in animal models. Similar studies are not generally feasible in humans, so a modeling framework is needed to facilitate knowledge transfer from animal studies. We describe such a framework that uses a deep neural network model to map finite element simulation of transcranial magnetic stimulation induced electric fields (E-fields) in motor cortex to recordings of multi-muscle activation. Critically, we show that model generalization is improved when we incorporate empirically derived physiological models for E-field to neuron firing rate and low-dimensional control via muscle synergies.
