    Numerous studies rely on motor imagery to examine the neural bases of movement using neuroimaging techniques. However, kinesthetic ability, or actual engagement of the participants in the task are not always controlled. The aim of this work was to evaluate the kinesthetic motor imagery ability...

S.; Vargas, Claudia D.; Rodrigues, Erika C. // Frontiers in Human Neuroscience;May2014, Vol. 8, p1 

    In this study we investigate to what extent the effects of motor imagery on postural sway are constrained by movement features and the subject's imagery ability. Twenty-three subjects were asked to imagine three movements using the kinesthetic modality: rising on tiptoes, whole-body forward...

    Motor imagery may use the same mental representations as overt actions, or it may be performed using a nonmotoric cognitive estimation strategy. These competing hypotheses were tested by having participants perform either simple overt pointing tasks or analogous motor imagery tasks while...

    Visual- and motor imagery rely primarily on perceptual and motor processes, respectively. In healthy controls, the type of imagery used to solve a task depends on personal preference, task instruction, and task properties. But how does the chronic loss of proprioceptive and tactile sensory...

    The relationship between visual and motor imagery was investigated by administering a battery of visual and motor imagery measures to a sample of 101 men (n=49) and women (n=52), who ranged in age from 18 to 59 (M = 34.5, SD = 12.6). A principal components analysis applied to the correlation...

    The article discusses a study conducted to investigate whether combination of observation and motor imagery of a complex task increase corticospinal excitability more than the performance of observation alone. The study results found that combining observation and imagery of chopstick use...

    While the use of motor imagery (the mental representation of an action without overt execution) during actual training sessions is usually recommended, experimental studies examining the effect of physical fatigue on subsequent motor imagery performance are sparse and yielded divergent findings....

    Over the past 2 decades, much work has been carried out on the use of mental practice through motor imagery for optimizing the retraining of motor function in people with physical disabilities. Although much of the clinical work with mental practice has focused on the retraining of...

    Motor imagery is a type of mental practice that involves imagining the body performing a movement in the absence of motor output. Dance training traditionally incorporates mental practice techniques, but quantitative effects of motor imagery on the performance of dance movements are largely...
