The neural correlates of cognitive time management: a review

Katya Rubia, Anna Smith
2004 Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis  
non-frontal brain regions such as the inferior parietal lobes, the cerebellum and the basal ganglia have been found to be involved in tasks of motor timing and time estimation.  ...  In this paper we review and discuss the involvement of these brain regions in different tasks of cognitive time management, illustrating it with own findings on motor timing and time perception tasks using  ...  The parietal lobes with their connections to fronto-striatal and fronto-cerebellar circuits are thus strategically well placed to support cognitive time management processes by assisting them with sustained  ...

The function of efference copy signals: Implications for symptoms of schizophrenia

Laura K. Pynn, Joseph F.X. DeSouza
2013 Vision Research  
Efference copy signals are used to reduce cognitive load by decreasing sensory processing of reafferent information (those incoming sensory signals that are produced by an organism's own motor output).  ...  Attenuated sensory processing of self-generated afferents is seen across species and in multiple sensory systems involving many different neural structures and circuits including both cortical and subcortical  ...  In some sensory systems, modulation of sensory responses can come from either proprioceptive information or efference copies of the motor command during the preparation for motor output.  ...
