Details This study investigated whether individual differences in executive function (EF) capacity are associated with gait motor imagery ability and prefrontal cortex (PFC) activity. The results suggest that the EF capacity, including WM, is strongly associated with gait motor imagery ability and right PFC activity. The brain network that includes the right PFC may play an important role in the maintenance and manipulation of gait motor imagery.
