This chapter examines the excitatory and inhibitory motor mechanisms involved in temporal preparation. It discusses between-block manipulations and proposes new perspectives for deciphering the neural mechanisms underlying within-block designs. It describes complementary neurophysiological approaches related to temporal preparation and suggests that temporal preparation does not only involve an increase in neural activity but also varies as a function of a subtle interplay between response activation and inhibition.

Keywords:   temporal preparation, excitatory motor, inhibitory motor, neural activity, response activation, response inhibition
