Modifying motor learning through gating and homeostatic metaplasticity.


Synaptic plasticity in the motor cortex is involved at least in some forms of motor learning. Recent evidence showed that the extent of practice-dependent plasticity in the motor cortex can be purposefully enhanced by experimental manipulation. One way of improving motor learning is to transiently increase the excitability of the motor cortex during motor… (More)
