Abstract

Accurate force production is an essential motor function which, in most cases, requires continuous performance monitoring. Unlike choice-response tasks with two response alternatives, the accuracy in a force production paradigm is defined as an area between an upper and lower limit on the force continuum. In the present study, we investigated the neural mechanisms underlying force production. We used a force production task in which the participants (n = 48) were asked to exert a brief force pulse within a specific force range. This allowed: (1) investigation of action monitoring activity during force execution using response-locked and feedback-locked event-related potential (ERP) component..
