We previously demonstrated that the organization of a learned sequential movement, after long-term practice, is based on the entire sequence and that the information pertaining to the sequence is largely specific to the hand used for practice. However, it remained unknown whether these characteristics are present from the beginning of learning. To answer the question, we examined the performance of four monkeys for the same sequential procedure in the early stage of learning. The monkeys' task… CONTINUE READING
