In our studies of the internal generation of mental activity, we studied not only the internal generation of words, but also the internal generation of sequences of finger movements (Frith et al, 1991b). In the latter studies, cerebral activity during the execution of a random sequence of finger movements, in an order determined by the experimenter, was subtracted from cerebral activity during performance of a random sequence of similar movements determined by the subject. We found that the internal generation of finger movement engages the left dorsolateral and medial frontal cortex, while there is suppression of activity at a site in the left parietal cortex.

Supervisory functions are responsible for the planning, initiation, selection and monitoring of mental or motor acts, in situations where the circumstances leave a degree of ambiguity regarding the most appropriate course of action.

In contrast, when an animal is subjected to chronic mild stress, there is a compensatory decrease in dopamine D2 receptor density in the ventral striatum that is associated with loss of interest in pleasurable activities (Willner et al, 1991). Thus motivation appears to be mediated by modulatory monoaminergic neurotransmitters that regulate the level of activation of neural assemblies representing specific behaviours. Conversely, the action of neural assemblies responsible for processing information, especially stressful information, modify the activity of the monoaminergic systems, altering the strength of motivation.
