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