Illusory limb movements activate different brain networks than imposed limb movements: an ALE meta-analysis

Proprioceptive information allows us to perform smooth coordinated movements by constantly updating us with knowledge of the position of our limbs in space. How this information is combined and processed to form conscious perceptions of limb position is still relatively unknown. Several functional neuroimaging studies have attempted to tease out the brain areas responsible for proprioceptive processing in the human brain. Yet there still exists some disagreement in the specific brain regions involved. In order to consolidate the current knowledge in the field, we performed a systematic review of the literature and an activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analysis of functional neuroima..
