Identifying brain’s preparation for action

Neuroscientists have identified the processes which occur in our brains milliseconds before we undertake a series of movements, crucial for speech, handwriting, sports or playing a musical instrument. Tracking brain activity, researchers could distinguish between neural mechanisms associated with skilled and error-prone actions. Following further research, this new information could lead to the development of interventions which would assist with rehabilitation post-stroke or improve life for people living with stutter, dyspraxia or other similar conditions.
