Action-perception connection and the cortical mu rhythm

Prog Brain Res. 2006;159:253-60. doi: 10.1016/S0079-6123(06)59017-X.

Abstract

The rolandic mu rhythm consists of two main frequency components: one around 10 Hz and the other around 20 Hz. Reactivity of the mu rhythm, especially its motor cortex 20-Hz component, provides an illuminating window to the involvement of the human sensorimotor system in the loop that connects action and perception with the environment.
