motor inhibition

Towards formal models of inhibitory mechanisms involved in motor imagery: a commentary on Bach et al. (2022)

A vast body of research suggests that the primary motor cortex is involved in motor imagery. This raises the issue of inhibition: how is it possible for motor imagery not to lead to motor execution? Bach et al. (2022) suggest that the motor execution …

Motor inhibition prevents execution during imagined typing: Evidence from an action‐mode switching paradigm

Motor imagery is accompanied by a subjective multisensory experience. This sensory experience is thought to result from internal models that control the execution of overt actions. If so, how is it that motor imagery does not to lead to overt execution?

The role of motor inhibition during covert speech production

Covert speech is accompanied by a subjective multisensory experience with auditory and kinaesthetic components. An influential hypothesis states that these sensory percepts result from a simulation of the corresponding motor action that relies on the …
