Whether we execute thought actions is undecided until we actually activate the limbs or vocal chords. So any cyber interface ends up as having to depend on the nerve signals to the muscles. Merely thinking about something can be a "shall I - shan't I?" internal conversation in which we might "practice" the move several times before deciding what to do.
