Abstract In this study, we examined whether movement imagery results in greater physiological responses and greater imagery ability when the imagery script is generated by the participant than when generated by the experimenter. Electromyography (EMG) was used to measure left and right biceps brachii and triceps muscle activity in 19 participants during physical and imagined performance of a set of 16 repetitions of a dumbbell curl performed with the right arm. EMG was measured during a relaxed… CONTINUE READING
