Mu rhythm desynchronization reveals motoric influences of hand action on object recognition.

Abstract:

We examined the effect of hand grip on object recognition by studying the modulation of the mu rhythm when participants made object decisions to objects and non-objects shown with congruent or incongruent hand-grip actions. Despite the grip responses being irrelevant to the task, mu rhythm activity on the scalp over motor and pre-motor cortex was sensitive to the congruency of the hand grip-in particular the event-related desynchronization of the mu rhythm was more pronounced for familiar obj...
