We investigated the pattern of EEG activity propagation in the beta and gamma band during a finger movement experiment and imagination of that task. The data were analyzed by means of a short-time directed transfer function (SDTF) based on a multivariate autoregressive model. The signals from the right (or left) hemisphere were processed simultaneously (not pairwise), which is crucial for obtaining a correct picture of EEG activity transmissions. The pattern of propagation in the beta band involved for both tasks a decrease of the propagation from the motor areas during the execution of the movement ? less pronounced in the case of imagination. The performance of the motion was mainly connected with a short outburst of gamma activity from the hand sensorimotor areas. In case of imagination the gamma outflow lasted longer and concerned larger brain areas.
