Title:
The neural correlates of planning and executing actual tool use. 
Abstract:
Human tool use is complex, and underlying neural mechanisms seem to be widely distributed across several brain systems; however, neuroimaging studies of actual tool use are rare because of experimental challenges hindering detailed analysis within one acting subject. We developed a "Tool-Carousel" that enabled us to test actual manipulation of different objects during fMRI and investigate the planning and execution of goal-directed actions. Particularly, we focused on the effects of three facto...    »
