Data from: Conservation of preparatory neural events in monkey motor cortex regardless of how movement is initiated

Antonio H Lara, Gamaleldin F Elsayed, Andrew J Zimnik, John P Cunningham & Mark M Churchland
A time-consuming preparatory stage is hypothesized to precede voluntary movement. A putative neural substrate of motor preparation occurs when a delay separates instruction and execution cues. When readiness is sustained during the delay, sustained neural activity is observed in motor and premotor areas. Yet whether delay-period activity reflects an essential preparatory stage is controversial. In particular, it has remained ambiguous whether delay-period-like activity appears before non-delayed movements. To overcome that ambiguity, we leveraged a recently...
