Human neuro-imaging studies have often reported co-activation of the dorsal premotor cortex (PMd) and the posterior parietal cortex (PPC) during internal operation of visuospatial information, referred to here as "visuospatial mental operation". However, the functions assigned to the PMd and PPC during these tasks are still unclear. Here, we examined the significance of these two areas for a visuospatial mental operation using the transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) technique. Subjects… Expand
The role of dorsal premotor cortex in mental rotation: A transcranial magnetic stimulation study
TLDR
The present findings indicate a contribution of PMd to mental rotation, as applied over premotor regions during mental rotation of objects and hands, which mediates mental rotation proper. Expand
Sequential Neural Processes in Abacus Mental Addition: An EEG and fMRI Case Study
Abacus experts are able to mentally calculate multi-digit numbers rapidly. Some behavioral and neuroimaging studies have suggested a visuospatial and visuomotor strategy during abacus mentalExpand
Abacus in the Brain: A Longitudinal Functional MRI Study of a Skilled Abacus User with a Right Hemispheric Lesion
TLDR
The case of a patient who was a good abacus user, but transiently lost her "mental abacus" and superior arithmetic performance after a stroke owing to a right hemispheric lesion is reported, suggesting an important role for the PMd and parietal cortex in the superior arithmetic ability of abacus users.

The effect of word imagery on priming effect under a preconscious condition: An fMRI study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the effect of the degree of imagery on semantic priming occurs during the early stage of language processing, indicating an “automatic imagery priming effect” and may be useful to explore semantic deficit related to imagery in various psychiatric disorders. Expand
Disrupting short-term memory in premotor cortex affects serial dependence in visuomotor integration
TLDR
Evidence is presented that a premotor area has a potential role in storing previous trial information in short-term memory in a visuomotor task, and that this information is responsible for biasing ongoing behavior. Expand
Disrupting short-term memory in premotor but not visual cortex affects serial dependence in visuomotor integration
Human behavior is biased by past experience. For example, when intercepting a moving target, the speed of previous targets will bias responses in future trials. Neural mechanisms underlying thisExpand
Cerebral Asymmetry of fMRI-BOLD Responses to Visual Stimulation
TLDR
A right-hemispheric dominance of early visual cortical areas and areas of higher-level visual processing, involved in visuospatial attention, could lend support to the generally observed leftward visual attentional bias and to the left hemifield advantage for some visual perception tasks. Expand
Repetitive TMS Suggests a Role of the Human Dorsal Premotor Cortex in Action Prediction
TLDR
The results are in line with the notion that premotor functions are employed in both action control and action observation, suggesting that the left PMd might be involved particularly during the initiation of internally guided action prediction but may play a subordinate role in maintaining ongoing prediction. Expand
Early visuomotor integration processes induce LTP/LTD-like plasticity in the human motor cortex.
TLDR
V-PAS induces M1 LTP/LTD-like plasticity by activating premotor-to-motor connections by activating contralateral V1 activation and VEPs and MEPs evoked by paired-pulse techniques are examined. Expand

TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that the PMdr is important in the rule-based association of symbolic cues and responses in both motor and nonmotor behaviors. Expand
Differential activity in the premotor cortex subdivisions in humans during mental calculation and verbal rehearsal tasks: a functional magnetic resonance imaging study
TLDR
The present study suggests that the rostral and dorsal part of the lateral premotor cortex (PMdr) and caudal part (PMdc) are involved in different non-motor cognitive processes. Expand
Tracking the Mind's Image in the Brain II Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Reveals Parietal Asymmetry in Visuospatial Imagery
TLDR
Functional parietal asymmetry might indicate a capacity of the right parietal lobe to compensate for a temporary suppression of the left during visuospatial operations and constitutes a constraint for models of distributed information processing in the parietal lobes. Expand
Functional Coupling of Human Prefrontal and Premotor Areas during Cognitive Manipulation
TLDR
Specific neural substrates are proposed for working memory manipulation: the DLPFC for segmenting/attentional selection and the pre-PMd for binding/sequencing and the functional coupling between the D LPFC and pre- PMd appears to play a role in combining these distinct operations. Expand
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation over Posterior Parietal Cortex Disrupts Transsaccadic Memory of Multiple Objects
TLDR
Right PPC plays a role in the spatial processing involved in transsaccadic memory of visual features, and it is proposed that this process uses saccade-related feedback signals similar to those observed in spatial updating. Expand
Modality-Specific Cognitive Function of Medial and Lateral Human Brodmann Area 6
TLDR
Direct physiological evidence of modality-specific cognitive function within human BA6 is provided and converging results demonstrate a functional double dissociation in which medial BA 6 has a critical role in updating verbal information and lateral BA6 has arole in updating spatial information. Expand
Hemispheric asymmetry in visuospatial attention assessed with transcranial magnetic stimulation
TLDR
Parietal influence on visuospatial attention is mainly controlled by the right lobe since the same stimulation over the left parietal cortex had no significant effect, and there is a vulnerable time window to disturb this cortical process, since dTMS had a significant effect on the percentage of errors in the contralateral visual hemifield only when applied 270 ms after visual stimulus presentation.

TLDR
A useful conceptual framework is provided for matching the functional imaging findings with the specific role(s) played by this structure in the higher-order cognitive functions in which it has been implicated, and activation patterns appear to converge with anatomical and connectivity data in providing preliminary evidence for a functional subdivision within the precuneus.
