BRAIN BUZZ  Using transcranial direct current stimulation, or tDCS, to zap two brain areas prompted people to report that their intent to click a mouse arose earlier than those of people who didn’t receive tDCS (top bar) or who had the supplementary motor area stimulated.  ~~ Source: Z.

Why do we like to listen to tunes when we exercise? Music helps us perform by taking over a vital piece of the task of moving, the rhythm travels in through our ears and down our auditory pathways to the supplementary motor area.

Cortical-basal ganglia pathways. All regions of cerebral cortex project to the basal ganglia, but output of basal ganglia is directed towards the frontal lobe, particularly pre-motor and supplementary motor cortex.
