Ready, Steady, Go! Imaging Cortical Activity during Movement Planning and Execution

Neuron. 2017 May 17;94(4):698-700. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2017.05.002.


In this issue of Neuron, Chen et al. (2017) examine premotor activity representing motor planning, Allen et al. (2017) observe the global representation of goal-directed movement on the cortical network, and Makino et al. (2017) track changes in such dynamics throughout learning.

Keywords: calcium imaging; motor preparation; movement; sensorimotor; wide-field imaging.
