Selection of the most appropriate response necessitates inhibition of competing or prepotent responses. It is important to characterize which cortical areas are relevant to achieve response inhibition. Using the stop signal task, previous imaging studies revealed consistent activation in the right pre-supplementary motor area (pre-SMA). However, imaging alone suffers from the limitation that it can only provide neuronal correlates and cannot establish causality between brain activation and… CONTINUE READING
