Disentangling hand and tool processing: Distal effects of neuromodulation

Disentangling hand and tool processing: Distal effects of neuromodulation
Cortex. 2022 Oct 4;157:142-154. doi: 10.1016/j.cortex.2022.08.011. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNeural processing within a local brain region that responds to more than one object category (e.g., hands and tools) nonetheless have different functional connectivity patterns with other distal brain areas, which suggests that local processing can affect and/or be affected by processing in distal areas, in a category-specific way. Here we wanted to test whether administering either a hand- or tool-related training task in tandem with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to a region that responds both to hands and tools (posterior middle temporal gyrus; pMTG), modulated local and distal neural ... read more
