Excerpts: For the first time, a team of researchers (...) has revealed the existence of an interaction at the cellular level between cognitive information and motor information. This discovery provides the missing link between studies on decision-making processes and those relative to the execution of motor acts. (...) There are two phases in the genesis of a movement directed towards a target when several choices are possible: firstly decision-making (cognitive information) and then the direction of this movement towards to the target (motor information).
