Harrison Ritz, Romy Frömer, Amitai Shenhav, Bridging Motor and Cognitive Control: It’s About Time!, Trends in Cognitive Sciences, Volume 24, Issue 1, January 2020, Pages 4-6, DOI: 10.1016/j.tics.2019.11.005.

This experiment reveals a promising connection between how we control our brain and our body.
