  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Positron emission tomography (PET) techniques for mapping the functional organization of the human brain, in which regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) is used to map the activity of neurons and synapses, have now achieved sufficient spatial resolution to identify specific sites of activation in relation to the motor tasks. Our recent PET studies investigating human brain activity in relation to the control of limb movements present following three evidences.
