A shift of visual spatial attention is selectively associated with human EEG alpha activity
Event‐related potentials and ongoing oscillatory electroencephalogram (EEG) activity were measured while subjects performed a cued visual spatial attention task. They were instructed to shift theirExpand

Simultaneous desynchronization and synchronization of different alpha responses in the human electroencephalograph: a neglected paradox?
This study aims to resolve a paradox. Experiments measuring alpha band power report an event related decrease (desynchronization) in alpha activity, whereas those measuring evoked alpha reportExpand

Robotic movement preferentially engages the action observation network
As humans, we gather a wide range of information about other people from watching them move. A network of parietal, premotor, and occipitotemporal regions within the human brain, termed the actionExpand

Episodic retrieval is reflected by a process specific increase in human electroencephalographic theta activity
Is an increase in theta during retrieval due (primarily) to the access of a stored code or to more general processes? The electroencephalogram was recorded while subjects performed a recognition taskExpand

Predicting and memorizing observed action: Differential premotor cortex involvement
Many studies have shown the involvement of the premotor cortex in action observation, recognizing this region as the neural marker of action simulation (i.e., internal modeling on the basis of theExpand

EEG alpha power and intelligence
Abstract The hypothesis was tested whether alpha power in different subbands (lower-1, lower-2, and upper alpha) is selectively related to intelligence. For 74 subjects, the EEG was recorded during aExpand

Repetitive TMS Suggests a Role of the Human Dorsal Premotor Cortex in Action Prediction
Predicting the actions of other individuals is crucial for our daily interactions. Recent evidence suggests that the prediction of object-directed arm and full-body actions employs the dorsalExpand

The influence of visual training on predicting complex action sequences
Linking observed and executable actions appears to be achieved by an action observation network (AON), comprising parietal, premotor, and occipitotemporal cortical regions of the human brain. AONExpand

The time locked theta response reflects interindividual differences in human memory performance
Recent research indicates that an increase in theta band power is related to episodic memory performance. In this study with human subjects, the evoked (time locked) and induced (not time locked)Expand

The fraction of an action is more than a movement: Neural signatures of event segmentation in fMRI
The present fMRI study sought to tear apart the neural signatures of processing two sources of information that observers may exploit at action boundaries: change in motion dynamics and action knowledge. Expand
