Electrical brain mapping reveals corticosubcortical subnetwork involved in motor control

Takeaway

  • Electrical brain mapping shows that negative motor areas (NMAs) are clustered and not randomly distributed, instead being part of a complex corticosubcortical subnetwork involved in motor control.

Why this matters ?

  • To date, the functional significance of negative motor responses (NMRs) and the spatial topography of NMAs have been poorly understood.
