Temporal evolution of both premotor and motor cortical tuning 1 properties reflect changes in limb biomechanics

42 A prevailing theory in the cortical control of limb movement posits that premotor cortex initiates a 43 high-level motor plan that is transformed by the primary motor cortex (MI) into a low-level motor 44 command to be executed. This theory implies that the premotor cortex is shielded from the 45 motor periphery and therefore its activity should not… (More)
