Cerebral patterns of activity elicited by dual-task performance throughout the learning of a complex bimanual coordination pattern were addressed. Subjects (N=12) were trained on the coordination pattern and scanned using fMRI at early (PRE) and late (POST) learning stages. During scanning, the coordination pattern was performed either as a single task or(More)
Intensive practice of a new complex motor skill results in progressive improvement of performance. This induces neuroplastic changes, reflecting the transition from attention-demanding to more automatic performance throughout the learning. In the present fMRI study, learning-related cerebral activation changes during the acquisition of a new complex(More)
