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 bimanual coordination pattern were examined, i.e., the 90 degrees out-of-phase pattern (90Phi). Furthermore, we investigated whether practice of… CONTINUE READING
