Brain Activity Related to Abandonment of Motor Intention in Point-to-Point Finger Movement  Tatsuji Tokiwa, Hiroshi Fukuda, Osamu Hiwaki  Journal of Signal Processing  19/ 1, 27-33  2015/01/01  We investigate brain potentials related to the abandonment of the motor intention prior to movement in human volitional finger movement. Our experimental result suggests that the observed positive component is associated with the interruption of motor intention, as well as the revision of motor planning, in the motor cortices prior to the movement. 
Research paper (scientific journal)  Joint  Brain activity evoked by motor inhibition before volitional finger movement  Hiroshi Fukuda, Osamu Hiwaki  Neuroreport  24/ 14, 791-796  2013/10/02  The present study investigated the brain activity that accompanied motor inhibition before movement in human volitional finger movement. The time to begin a finger movement was indicated with a clock making a 4-s revolution. The time at which the clock hand passed the 3 o’clock position was adopted as the go-signal in the go task. In the series of trials, the task, we designated as pre-stop task, was performed with a red light-emitting diode stop-signal presented randomly at 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, or 0.5 s before the go-signal. Cerebral potentials from the scalp were recorded using a 20-channel electroencephalography system. In the go task without the stop-signal, clear movement-related cortical potentials were observed. In the prestop tasks with the stop-signal, the participants were able to inhibit finger movement. A positive electroencephalography potential distributed at the midline frontocentral scalp 400 ms after the stop-signal was observed only in the pre-stop task. This suggests that the observed positive component is associated with the interruption of motor intent, as well as the revision of motor planning, in the motor cortices before the movement.
