Motor imagery of speech: The involvement of primary motor cortex in manual and articulatory motor imagery
Publication year: 2019

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Motor imagery refers to the phenomenon of imagining performing an action without action execution. Motor imagery and motor execution are assumed to share a similar underlying neural system that involves primary motor cortex (M1). Previous studies have focused on motor imagery of manual actions, but articulatory motor imagery has not been investigated. In this study, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was used to elicit motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) from the articulatory muscles [orbicularis oris (OO)] as well as from hand muscles [first dorsal interosseous (FDI)]. Twenty participants were asked to execute or imagine performing a simple squeezing task involving a pair of tweezers, which was comparable across both effectors. MEPs were elicited at six time points (50, 150, 250, 350, 450, 550 ms post-stimulus) to track the time course of M1 involvement in both lip and hand tasks. The results showed increased MEP amplitudes for action execution compared to rest for both effectors at time points 350, 450 and 550 ms, but we found no evidence of increased cortical activation for motor imagery. The results indicate that motor imagery does not involve M1 for simple tasks for manual or articulatory muscles. The results have implications for models of mental imagery of simple articulatory gestures, in that no evidence is found for somatotopic activation of lip muscles in sub-phonemic contexts during motor imagery of such tasks, suggesting that motor simulation of relatively simple actions does not involve M1.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Activity in (primary) motor cortex (M1) increases as we imagine actions. Speech imagery occurs when we silently prepare what we want to say before speaking. Past research focused on neural bases of gesture imagery only and not on speech imagery. Theories on the neural organisation of speech attribute a key role to covert motor simulation processes such as imagery. Two processes have been identified: imagery and action observation. These processes differ in two important aspects: while observation is passive and requires exposure to an external stimulus, imagery is active and requires attention, and that can occur without external stimulus. A key role for M1 in motor simulation of speech has not been established.
AIM:
This project tested if and how imagery and observation of speech engaged M1.
METHOd:
We combined Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) with behavioural tasks. When TMS is applied to left speech M1, the relative excitability of M1 and linked lip and tongue muscles is measured using Motor Evoked Potentials (MEPs). We recorded MEPs from lip (study 1a) and tongue (1b) muscles when participants imagined producing simple (1a) or complex (1b) speech actions.
CONCLUSIONS:
The results showed that lip M1 was only in imagery of complex (but not simple) speech actions.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Motor imagery has been hypothesised to involve activation of motor cortex in the absence of executed movement. Past studies investigated the role of motor cortex in motor imagery for manual actions and speech actions. We conducted two experiments to investigate how speech imagery involves motor cortex during action execution, action perception, and imagery. We measured Motor Evoked Potentials (MEPs) from hand and lip muscles to establish the relative excitability of hand or lip motor cortex. Participants in experiment 1 performed a simple squeezing task. In the manual task they squeezed a pair of wooden pliers between their thumb and index finger, imagined squeezing the tweezers (imagery) or did nothing (baseline), and in the lip task they squeezed the tweezers, or imagined squeezing the tweezers, or did nothing. In experiment 2, participants produced a difficult consonant sequence (/tr/) listened to the sequence (auditory), or did nothing (baseline). Experiment 1 showed enhanced cortical excitability for action execution relative to baseline, but no imagery effects for hand or lip. The result from experiment 2 showed enhanced excitability for imagery relative to the auditory condition and baseline. Motor cortex involvement during imagery appears to be dependent on task complexity.
