Intention Movements

Hi all,
I'm translating a biology related article about Intention Movements. These are subtle, unconcious movements that give away what a person/animal is going to do next. For example, if someone wants to stand up, that person will lean forward before standing up. Generally, this type of movements last up to a second. But if the person changes their mind and the action is stopped before happenning, there's only the intention movement left.

I understand what it is but I was wondering if there is a specific scientiific term that refers to it. Thank you very much!
