The functional correlates of movement extent, speed, and covariates were investigated using PET mapping of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in 13 healthy right-handed adults. A whole-arm smooth pursuit tracking task was used to strictly control potential confounds such as movement duration, error, and feedback control. During each of four scans, images of relative rCBF were obtained while subjects matched the constant velocity movements of a target using a joystick-controlled cursor. Between… Expand
Delineating the whole brain BOLD response to passive movement kinematics
TLDR
This represents the first investigation into whole brain response to parametric changes in passive movement kinematics and has implications towards neural correlates of robotic rehabilitation. Expand
Cortical and subcortical areas involved in the regulation of reach movement speed in the human brain: An fMRI study
TLDR
A network of multiple cortical and subcortical brain regions that are involved in speed regulation among which putamen, anterior thalamus, and PMC show highest specificity to speed are revealed, suggesting a basal‐ganglia‐thalamo‐ cortical loop for speed regulation. Expand
Functional interactions between the cerebellum and the premotor cortex for error correction during the slow rate force production task: an fMRI study
Although neuroimaging studies indicate that functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) signal changes in the cerebellum (CB) during the performance of a target movement reflect functions of errorExpand
Basal ganglia contribution to the initiation of corrective submovements
TLDR
The neural processes investigated, with a focus on subcortical circuits, which govern corrective submovements in visually targeted action, indicate that the basal ganglia and cerebellum play complementary roles in regulating ongoing actions when precise updating is required. Expand
3D Cortical electrophysiology of ballistic upper limb movement in humans
TLDR
The results suggest that humans use distinct lateralized cortical activity for distance and speed dependent arm movements, and provide new evidence that a temporary increase in theta band power relates to movement acceleration and is important during movement execution. Expand
Preferential encoding of movement amplitude and speed in the primary motor cortex and cerebellum
TLDR
C cumulative evidence supporting preferential encoding of kinematic parameters along the motor system is presented, based on blood‐oxygenation‐level dependent signal recorded in a well‐controlled single‐joint wrist‐flexion task, and results suggest that during single-joint movements, distinct kinematics parameters are controlled by largely distinct brain regions that work together to produce and control precise movements. Expand
The activity in the contralateral primary motor cortex, dorsal premotor and supplementary motor area is modulated by performance gains
TLDR
The results indicate that the amount of activation in the contralateral M1, PMd, and preSMA during the learning of movement sequences is correlated with performance gains and that high level motion features may modulate, or even mask correlations between activity changes and low-level motion attributes. Expand
Subthalamic nucleus and internal globus pallidus scale with the rate of change of force production in humans
TLDR
It is concluded that fast, ballistic force production is preprogrammed, requiring a small metabolic demand from the basal ganglia, and movements that require the internal regulation of the rate of change of force are associated with increased metabolic demands from the subthalamic nucleus and internal segment of the globus pallidus. Expand
Motor cortical control of movement speed with implications for brain-machine interface control.
TLDR
The finding of relatively little speed information in motor cortex inspired a speed-dampening Kalman filter (SDKF) that automatically slows the cursor upon detecting changes in decoded movement direction, which enhances speed control by using prevalent directional signals, rather than requiring speed to be directly decoded from neural activity. Expand
Movement quantity and frequency coding in human motor areas.
TLDR
It is suggested that the movement quantity relationships in human motor areas and encoding of movement frequency in nonmotor areas may reflect a functional anatomical substrate for mediating distinct movement parameters. Expand

TLDR
The activation of GP with increasing movement velocity supports the hypothesis that the basal ganglia motor circuit may be involved preferentially in controlling or monitoring the scale and/or dynamics of arm movements. Expand

A method for mathematically modeling the changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) as a function of experimental parameters using step and linear functions is presented. Expand
Monkey primary motor and premotor cortex: single-cell activity related to prior information about direction and extent of an intended movement.
TLDR
Behavioral data support a parametric conception of motor programming, i.e., that the programming of the different movement parameters results from assembling separate processes of different duration, compatible with the model in which programming processes are serially and hierachically ordered.

Frequency-Dependent Changes of Regional Cerebral Blood Flow during Finger Movements
TLDR
Changes correlating with those in the SMA were found in the anterior cingulate gyrus, right prefrontal area, and right thalamus, and the decreases in CBF may reflect a progressive change in performance from reactive to predictive. Expand
An fMRI study of the human cortical motor system response to increasing functional demands.
TLDR
Although activation was evident in varying degree throughout the multiple motor areas, only the MAs showed consistent lateralization of activation, and functional specialization of some components of the system was suggested. Expand
Regional cerebral blood flow during voluntary arm and hand movements in human subjects.
TLDR
The data indicate that neither "fractionation" nor distal movement per se cause selective activation of sensorimotor cortex, and this finding does not prove unequivocally a "selective" role of the nonprimary motor areas in proximal movement. Expand
Motor cortical representation of speed and direction during reaching.
TLDR
The motor cortical substrate associated with reaching was studied as monkeys moved their hands from a central position to one of eight targets spaced around a circle, and the distributions of preferred directions were found to be significantly different from cortical activity. Expand

TLDR
Finger speed during figure tracing varied inversely with path curvature with the same relation that has been found during human drawing, and movement direction as it changed during the tracing task was an important factor in the discharge pattern of cells that had discharge patterns that could be represented by the cosine tuning function.
