Impaired sense of agency in functional movement disorders: An fMRI study

Fatta B. Nahab, Prantik Kundu, Carine Maurer, Qian Shen, Mark Hallett, Angela Sirigu
2017 PLoS ONE  
The sense of agency (SA) is an established framework that refers to our ability to exert and perceive control over our own actions.  ...  Having an intact SA provides the basis for the human perception of voluntariness, while impairments in SA are hypothesized to lead to the perception of movements being involuntary that may be seen many  ...  The neural correlates of the sense of agency have been explored using a variety of methods, including PET [6] , fMRI [4, [8] [9] [10] [11] , and EEG [12] .  ...

The obedient mind and the volitional brain: A neural basis for preserved sense of agency and sense of responsibility under coercion

Emilie A. Caspar, Frederike Beyer, Axel Cleeremans, Patrick Haggard, Thilo Kellermann
2021 PLoS ONE  
Here, we used fMRI to investigate the neural systems associated with changes in volitional processes associated with sense of agency and sense of responsibility under coercion.  ...  We have previously shown that coercion reduces temporal binding, which has been proposed as an implicit proxy measure of sense of agency.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Steve Fleming for help with the design development, imaging data collection and valuable input for this project.  ...

Self-determined, but not non-self-determined, motivation predicts activations in the anterior insular cortex: an fMRI study of personal agency

Woogul Lee, Johnmarshall Reeve
2012 Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience  
Neuroscientific studies on agency focus rather exclusively on the notion of who initiates and regulates actions, not on the notion of why the person does.  ...  The present study focused on the latter to investigate two different reasons underlying personal agency.  ...  That is, bodily information during self-initiated motor activity is monitored by the insular cortex, and its activities then provide the neural basis of the sense of agency (Farrer et al., 2003) .  ...

Peng Li, Yue Shen, Xue Sui, Changming Chen, Tingyong Feng, Hong Li, Clay Holroyd, Frank Krueger
2013 PLoS ONE  
However, the neural basis of responsibility attribution remains unclear.  ...  The present study provides evidence that the RTPJ is an important region for determining whether self-generated behaviors are deserving of praise in a social context.  ...  Blackwood et al. conducted an fMRI study to explore the neural basis of responsibility attribution and the self-serving bias in attributional decision tasks [17] .  ...
