Current evidence indicates that repetitive motor behavior during motor learning paradigms can produce changes in representational organization in motor cortex. In a previous study, we trained adult squirrel monkeys on a repetitive motor task that required the retrieval of food pellets from a small-diameter well. It was found that training produced consistent task-related changes in movement representations in primary motor cortex (M1) in conjunction with the acquisition of a new motor skill. In… Expand

ConditionsCerebral Palsy
Skill representation in the primary motor cortex after long-term practice.
TLDR
M1 may be a site of storage for the internal representation of skilled sequential movements, especially sequences of movements, during skilled movement sequences in macaques trained to successively hit targets on a monitor. Expand
Sensitivity of cortical movement representations to motor experience: evidence that skill learning but not strength training induces cortical reorganization
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the development of skilled forelimb movements, but not increased fore Limb strength, was associated with a reorganization of forelimB movement representations within motor cortex. Expand
Motor learning transiently changes cortical somatotopy
TLDR
The findings suggest that successful acquisition but not storage of a motor skill depends on cortical map changes, and that the motor memory trace in rats may require changes in motor cortex organization other than those detected by stimulation mapping. Expand
Distal forelimb representations in primary motor cortex are redistributed after forelimb restriction: a longitudinal study in adult squirrel monkeys.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that plasticity in motor representations can be induced by training or restricting movements of the limb, and Physiological changes induced by restriction appear to be reversible, even in the case of adverse motor outcomes. Expand
Preparatory activity in motor cortex reflects learning of local visuomotor skills
TLDR
A neural mechanism for the locality of newly acquired sensorimotor tasks is suggested and electrophysiological evidence for their retention in working memory is provided. Expand
Interactions Among Learning Stage, Retention, and Primary Motor Cortex Excitability in Motor Skill Learning
TLDR
The present results indicate that changes in M1 excitability occur during the slow-learning stage and that such changes are proportional to motor skill retention because use-dependent plasticity occur by repetitive use of same motor commands during theSlow- learning stage. Expand
Learning from Goal and Action Based Observations Differentially Modulates Functional Motor Cortical Plasticity
TLDR
It is proposed that the encoding of observed movements maps onto motor representations of the same action to form a limb-specific motor memory, whereas the learning of spatial goals forms memory traces in the motor representations in both hemispheres to prepare for potential action in either hand. Expand
Forelimb training drives transient map reorganization in ipsilateral motor cortex
TLDR
New insights are provided into how the ipsilateral cortex changes in response to skilled learning and may inform rehabilitative strategies to enhance cortical plasticity to support recovery after brain injury. Expand
Neurophysiological correlates of motor skill learning : reorganization of movement representations within motor cortex
This thesis used a rodent model of skilled forelimb training and intracortical microstimulation to examine the relationship between learning and cortical reorganization. This thesis examines howExpand
Changes in corticospinal excitability associated with motor learning by observing
TLDR
It is found that observing FF learning resulted in subsequent increases in MEP amplitudes recorded from right first dorsal interosseous and right abductor pollicis brevis muscles at rest, consistent with the idea that observing motor learning produces functional changes in M1, corticospinal networks or both.

Use-dependent alterations of movement representations in primary motor cortex of adult squirrel monkeys
TLDR
The finding that cocontracting muscles in the behavior come to be represented together in the cortex argues that, as in sensory cortices, temporal correlations drive emergent changes in distributed motor cortex representations. Expand
The acquisition of skilled motor performance: fast and slow experience-driven changes in primary motor cortex.
TLDR
It is shown that a few minutes of daily practice on a sequential finger opposition task can be sufficient to trigger performance gains that require time to become evident, and proposed that skilled motor performance is acquired in several stages: "fast" learning, an initial, within-session improvement phase, followed by a period of consolidation of several hours duration, and then "slow" learnings, consisting of delayed, incremental gains in performance emerging after continued practice.

Results demonstrate that motor skill learning is associated with a reorganization of movement representations within the rodent motor cortex. Expand

TLDR
A slowly evolving, long-term, experience-dependent reorganization of the adult Ml is suggested, which may underlie the acquisition and retention of the motor skill. Expand

TLDR
Evidence is provided that compensatory movement patterns are used in the recovery of motor function following cortical injury, even after relatively small lesions that produce mild, transient deficits in motor performance. Expand
Neuronal activity in the motor and premotor cortices before and after learning the associations between auditory stimuli and motor responses
TLDR
After the monkey had learned the association between an auditory signal and a motor response, a significant increase in the proportion and activity of directional set-related cells in the premotor cortex was found and none of those changes were observed in the motor cortex. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that a large source of variability found in the topography of motor maps in this and other studies derives from differences in the way particular movements and/or movement combinations are performed by individual animals. Expand

TLDR
The present findings support a role for premotor cortex in motor preparation, generally, and suggest a specific role in the selection of movements on the basis of arbitrary associations. Expand
Rapid plasticity of human cortical movement representation induced by practice.
TLDR
Training rapidly, and transiently, established a change in the cortical network representing the thumb, which encoded kinematic details of the practiced movement, suggesting that this phenomenon may be regarded as a short-term memory for movement and be the first step of skill acquisition. Expand

It is demonstrated that attended natural stimulation can modify the tonotopic organization of Al in the adult primate, and that this alteration is correlated with changes in perceptual acuity. Expand
