The magnetoencephalographic signal was collected in a visually guided response-finger selection GO/NOGO task. The minimum norm distributed source analysis identified the sources in bilateral superior parietal lobules (SPL), with stronger activity for contralateral finger movement. Our results suggest that the human SPL plays a role in the spatial selection in a visuomotor task similar to that identified recently in monkeys.
