  • Voluntary movements depend on a well-regulated interplay between the primary motor cortex (M1) and premotor areas. While to date the neural underpinnings of hand movements are relatively well understood, we only have rather limited knowledge on the cortical control of lower-limb movements. Given that our hands and feet have different roles for activities of daily living, with hand movements being more frequently used in a lateralized fashion, we hypothesized that such behavioral differences… CONTINUE READING
