Title:
Neural representations of pantomimed and actual tool use: evidence from an event-related fMRI study. 
Abstract:
Pantomime of tool use is a highly sensitive test to detect apraxia. The relationship to real-life performance is however unclear since apraxic patients frequently improve substantially when allowed to actually use tools. In the present study, the neural correlates of pantomimed and actual tool use were directly compared in healthy subjects using an event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) paradigm. Subjects were requested to demonstrate the use of various tools either as pantom...    »
