The motor-inhibition process was examined in humans by monitoring reaction times (RTs), electromyograms (EMGs), and movement-related potentials. Eight subjects performed two types of visual stop signal paradigm, one with ongoing motor activity and the other without background motor activity. NO-GO-specific negative potentials were consistently recorded from subjects with constant onset and duration relative to the onset of the NO-GO stimulus in both tasks and the spatial distribution of… CONTINUE READING
