Attention to movement modulates activity in sensori-motor areas, including primary motor cortex.

Abstract:

Attention to sensory stimulation modulates behavioural responses and cortical activity. Attention to movement can also modulate motor responses. For example, directing attention away from cued movements can increase reaction times. This study used fMRI to determine where in the motor cortex attention to movement modulates activity. Attention to movement was reduced by asking subjects to perform a concurrent distractor task (counting backwards). Sensori-motor areas showing a negative interacti...
