The Representing Brain : Neural Correlates of Motor Intention and Imagery

  title={The Representing Brain : Neural Correlates of Motor Intention and Imagery},
  author={Marc Jeannerod},
This target article concerns how motor actions are neurally represented and coded. Action planning and motor preparation can be studied using motor imagery. A close functional equivalence between motor imagery and motor preparation is suggested by the positive effects of imagining movements on motor learning, the similarity between the neural structures involved, and the similar physiological correlates observed in both imagining and preparing. The content of motor representations can be… CONTINUE READING
