It has been suggested that the different patterns of brain activity observed during paced finger tapping and non-movement related timing tasks, with medial premotor cortex (supplementary motor cortex, pre and proper) and ipsilateral cerebellum dominating the former, and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) the latter, might be related to differing motor demands. Since paced finger tapping often consists of automatic movement (requiring little overt attention), while non-motor timing is… CONTINUE READING
