Hi FRESH team,

I have a question regarding the hypotheses for the motor data set. What is meant by contralateral here:

"2. Left AND right hand finger tapping of 2 sec duration, conditions combined, evokes a response in the contralateral primary motor cortex."

Same question for hypotheses 3. and 4. Does this mean contralateral to the LEFT hand? 

Thanks,

Franziska

@franzi, i.e. to say: Is the response ,overall, -i.e. considering both left and right-hand finger tapping conditions- significant on the contralateral side. Contralateral side means different for each task i.e. for left-hand finger tapping, a brain activation on the right hemisphere, and for right-hand finger tapping, a brain activation on the left hemisphere. Does that answer your question?
