This review discusses the cerebral plasticity, and the role of the cortico-striatal system in particular, observed as one is learning or planning to execute a newly learned motor behavior up to when the skill is consolidated or has become highly automatized. A special emphasis is given to imaging work describing the neural substrate mediating motor sequence learning and motor adaptation paradigms. These results are then put into a plausible neurobiological model of motor skill learning, which… Expand

Neural Correlates of Motor Skill Acquisition and Consolidation
This article constitutes an overview of the neural correlates mediating the acquisition and consolidation of new motor skills. Although the article will be limited to the two most commonly usedExpand
Current issues related to motor sequence learning in humans
The learning of sequential motor behaviors involves the integration of separate movements into a unified and coordinated sequence of actions through practice. Neuroimaging studies in humans stronglyExpand
[Functional brain plasticity associated with motor learning].
TLDR
Evidence is put forward that post-training, non-REM sleep contributes to the consolidation of a motor sequence memory trace, and that increased activity within the striatum and/or the hippocampus mediates this mnemonic process. Expand
Cortical and basal ganglia contributions to habit learning and automaticity
TLDR
Evidence supports the view that subcortical structures, such as the striatum, make significant contributions to initial learning and indicates that automatic behaviors are striatum- and dopamine-independent, and might be mediated entirely within cortex. Expand
The striatum: where skills and habits meet.
TLDR
Evidence supporting the role of the striatum in optimizing behavior by refining action selection and in shaping habits and skills as a modulator of motor repertoires is reviewed, challenging the notion that striatal learning processes are limited to the motor domain. Expand
Consolidation alters motor sequence-specific distributed representations
TLDR
These findings show, for the first time in humans, that complementary sequence-specific motor representations evolve distinctively during critical phases of skill acquisition and consolidation. Expand
Neuroplasticity Subserving Motor Skill Learning
TLDR
Findings demonstrating functional and structural plasticity across different spatial and temporal scales that mediate motor skill learning are reviewed while identifying converging areas of interest and possible avenues for future research. Expand
Basal ganglia-dependent processes in recalling learned visual-motor adaptations
TLDR
The results showed that PD patients had similar adaptation rates as controls but did not demonstrate savings at both recall tests, interpreted as evidence that fronto-striatal networks have involvement in the early to late phase of motor memory formation, but not during initial learning. Expand
Cerebellar and prefrontal cortex contributions to adaptation, strategies, and reinforcement learning.
TLDR
This work examines the relevance of multiple learning mechanisms for sensorimotor learning, including processes involving repetition, reinforcement learning, and strategy utilization, and how this structure interacts with other neural systems to support motor learning. Expand
Parallel contributions of cerebellar, striatal and M1 mechanisms to motor sequence learning
TLDR
A model is presented proposing that sequence learning is underwritten by parallel, interacting processes, including internal model formation and sequence representation, that are instantiated in specific cerebellar, BG or M1 mechanisms depending on task demands and the stage of learning. Expand

Central mechanisms of motor skill learning
TLDR
It is proposed that motor skill learning occurs independently and in different coordinates in two sets of loop circuits: cortex-basal ganglia and cortex-cerebellum, which accounts for the seemingly diverse features of motor learning. Expand
Neural correlates of motor memory consolidation.
TLDR
Functional imaging of the brain demonstrates that within 6 hours after completion of practice, while performance remains unchanged, the brain engages new regions to perform the task; there is a shift from prefrontal regions of the cortex to the premotor, posterior parietal, and cerebellar cortex structures, specific to recall of an established motor skill.

TLDR
This work has suggested that the cerebellum, the basal ganglia, and the cerebral cortex are specialized for different types of learning: namely, supervised learning, reinforcement learning and unsupervised learning, respectively. Expand
Experience-dependent changes in cerebellar contributions to motor sequence learning
TLDR
Results indicate that intrinsic modulation within the cerebellum, in concert with activation of motor-related cortical regions, serves to set up a procedurally acquired sequence of movements that is then maintained elsewhere in the brain. Expand
Reorganization and plasticity in the adult brain during learning of motor skills
TLDR
The functional anatomy and the cerebral plasticity associated with both motor sequence learning and motor adaptation is discussed based in work and that of others using brain imaging techniques and a new model of motor skill learning is presented. Expand
Distinct Contribution of the Striatum and Cerebellum to Motor Learning
TLDR
The present findings suggest that the striatum and cerebellum are involved in distinct learning mechanisms in patients with Parkinson's disease or with cerebellar damage and in age-matched controls. Expand
Functional role of the basal ganglia in the planning and execution of actions
TLDR
This study aimed to test the hypothesis that the caudate nucleus is primarily involved in the preparation of a novel action and not in set‐shifting per se. Expand

Cerebellum Activation Associated with Performance Change but Not Motor Learning
TLDR
No cerebellar activation was associated with the learning phase, despite extensive involvement of other cortical and subcortical regions; thus, the cerebellum does not contribute to learning of the motor skill itself but is engaged primarily in the modification of performance. Expand
