During the foreperiod of a forewarned reaction time (RT) task reflexes in the executing limb increase to a lesser extent than those in the contralateral limb. This is possibly due to input modulation. The present study investigates the possibility of cutaneous sensory modulation during motor preparation by studying the amplitudes of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs). Eighteen subjects performed a forewarned RT task with the same fingers as the ones which were electrically stimulated. SEPs… CONTINUE READING
