Behavioral studies in humans have shown that bimanual coordination imposes specific demands on the central nervous system that exceed unimanual task control. In the present study we used functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the neural correlate of this additional coordination effort, i.e. regions responding more strongly to bimanual movements than inferred from summing up the responses to the unimanual subtasks. Subjects were scanned while performing movements along different… Expand
Monitoring Coordination during Bimanual Movements: Where Is the Mastermind?
TLDR
Direct insight is provided into the neural correlates of coordinated bimanual movements and the role of right STG is highlighted, which is more strongly activated in the coordination condition than the SMA, STG, or primary motor cortex. Expand
Cortical regions involved in the observation of bimanual actions.
TLDR
This study used fMRI to compare the observation of bimanual manipulative actions with their unimanual components, relative to visual control conditions equalized for visual motion, and indicated bilateral parietal activation patterns across hand conditions distinctly different from those at other levels of the action-observation network. Expand
Reduced basal ganglia function when elderly switch between coordinated movement patterns.
TLDR
The hypothesis that age-related motor switching deficits are associated with reduced basal ganglia (BG) function is tested and significantly reduced SW»ASYMM activation in bilateral subthalamic nucleus and right globus pallidus is revealed, only in the elderly. Expand
The motor preparation of directionally incompatible movements
TLDR
The electro-cortical activity recorded during the preparation of the bimanually incompatible actions included a central positivity (CP) that began approximately 2.5s before movement onset and was localized in medial frontal areas. Expand
Bimanual Passive Movement: Functional Activation and Inter-Regional Coupling
TLDR
It is concluded that implicit detection of asymmetry during bimanual movement relies on associative somatosensory region in post-central areas, and that passive stimulation reduces the functional connectivity within the passive movement network. Expand
Global activation of primary motor cortex during voluntary movements in man
TLDR
It is proposed that specific unilateral voluntary movements are accompanied by a global activation of primary motor areas, reflecting an overall increase in neuronal activity and unraveling the fundamental principle of distributed processing in M1. Expand
Functional connectivity mapping of the human precuneus by resting state fMRI
TLDR
It is shown that the lateral/medial volumes of dorsal anterior and dorsal posterior precuneus are each connected with areas of motor execution/attention and motor/visual imagery, respectively, which may provide a useful platform upon which to further investigate sex-specific functional neuroanatomy of the precuneu. Expand
Ipsilateral coordination at preferred rate: Effects of age, body side and task complexity
TLDR
Under self-paced conditions, task complexity and body side did not have a modulatory effect on age-related brain activation, and evidence of age-dependent underactivation was found in contralateral M1, SMA and bilateral putamen. Expand
Effector-Specific Characterization of Brain Dynamics in Manual vs. Oculomotor Go/NoGo Tasks
TLDR
The collective results revealed that while domain-general IC processes would be engaged across different response effectors in the same IC task, effector-specific activation patterns exist and the stronger activation of the left precuneus likely accounts for the increased demand for visual attentional processes in the oculomotor Go/NoGo task. Expand
Mirror Illusion Modulates M1 Activities and Functional Connectivity Patterns of Perceptual–Attention Circuits During Bimanual Movements: A Magnetoencephalography Study
TLDR
A concrete functional connectivity pattern for motor control in the face of visual conflicts is demonstrated, providing a foundation for future research to examine the dynamic functional networks of mirror illusion in motor control. Expand

Role of the Supplementary Motor Area and the Right Premotor Cortex in the Coordination of Bimanual Finger Movements
TLDR
The posterior SMA and right PMd appear to be related to the bimanual coordination of finger movements, and areas with changes of rCBF during bimanUAL finger movements of different characteristics were detected. Expand
Bimanual versus unimanual coordination: what makes the difference?
TLDR
Interestingly, the authors found stronger activations for unimanual as compared to bimanual coordination, and hypothesize that task difficulty is more important in determining which network components are activated and to what extent, compared to the factor of bimanuality. Expand
Cerebellar mediation of the complexity of bimanual compared to unimanual movements
TLDR
The study corroborated clinical use of diadochokinesis tasks to test for aspects of cerebellar integrity and verified the localization of a clinical test of limb ataxia (diadochkinesis) and the data do not support the literature emphasizing basal ganglia mediation of this type of coordinated movement. Expand
Relation of bimanual coordination to activation in the sensorimotor cortex and supplementary motor area: Analysis using functional magnetic resonance imaging
TLDR
The results suggested that the activation of the SMA, at least during a simple motion used in the present study, was little influenced by whether the motion was unimanual or bimanual but instead how the bimanUAL motion was composed of the motion element of a single hand. Expand
Parieto-premotor areas mediate directional interference during bimanual movements.
TLDR
It is concluded that directional interference activates a parieto-premotor circuit that is involved in the control of goal-directed movements under somatosensory guidance and suggested that the parietal cortex might represent an important locus for integrating spatial aspects of the limbs' movements into a common action. Expand
Cerebellar and premotor function in bimanual coordination: parametric neural responses to spatiotemporal complexity and cycling frequency
TLDR
The cerebellum and the dorsal premotor cortex were identified as the principal regions responding to manipulation of both parameters and exhibiting clear interaction effects, and it was concluded that both areas represent critical sites for the control of bimanual coordination. Expand
Role of the human anterior cingulate cortex in the control of oculomotor, manual, and speech responses: a positron emission tomography study.
TLDR
The localization of output-specific rCBF changes within the human ACC is consistent with the known somatotopic organization of the cingulate cortex in the monkey, and it is tentatively proposed that the ACC participates in motor control by facilitating the execution of the appropriate responses and/or suppressing the Execution of the inappropriate ones.

Cortical and cerebellar activity of the human brain during imagined and executed unimanual and bimanual action sequences: a functional MRI study.
TLDR
The neural correlates of executed and imagined finger sequences, both unimanual and bimanual, were studied in adult right-handed volunteers using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the entire brain to suggest that cortico-cerebellar loops are engaged only when action sequences are both intended and realized. Expand
Brain activations during motor imagery of locomotor‐related tasks: A PET study
TLDR
The present findings suggest that higher brain centers become progressively engaged when demands of locomotor tasks require increasing cognitive and sensory information processing. Expand
Brain Regions Controlling Nonsynergistic versus Synergistic Movement of the Digits: a Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
TLDR
The results suggest that the human neural substrate for skillful digit movement includes a sensorimotor network of nonprimary frontoparietal areas and the cerebellum that, in conjunction with M1, control the movements of the digits. Expand
