Recently, it has been demonstrated that sensorimotor representations are quickly updated following a brief period of limb non-use. The present study examined the potential of motor imagery practice (MIP) and investigated the role of motor imagery instructions (kinesthetic vs. visual imagery) to counteract the functional impairment induced by sensorimotor(More)
We investigated the embodied nature of motor imagery processes through a recent use-dependent plasticity approach, a short-term limb immobilization paradigm. A splint placed on the participants' left-hand during a brief period of 24 h was used for immobilization. The immobilized participants performed two mental rotation tasks (a hand mental rotation task(More)
