Abstract

Catching movements must be aimed ahead of the moving ball, which may require predictions of when and where to catch. Here, using repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation we show for the first time that the Superior Parietal Occipital Cortex (SPOC) displays non-predictive online spatial coding at the moment the interception movements were already aimed at the predicted final target position. The ability to aim ahead for catching must thus arise downstream within the parietofrontal network for reaching.
