The physiological basis of mental states can be effectively studied by combining cognitive psychology with human neuroscience. Recent research has employed mental motor imagery in normal and brain-damaged subjects to decipher the content and the structure of covert processes preceding the execution of action. The mapping of brain activity during motor imagery discloses a pattern of activation similar to that of an executed action.
