Multiple Processes Independently Predict Motor Learning

Perry et al. J Neuro Engineering Rehabil (2020) 17:151 https://doi.org/10.1186/s12984-020-00766-3. 

The authors of this paper used an ethological approach to test the hypothesis that practice-related refinements of multiple behavioural features would be independently predictive of motor learning.

 

Key Points

  • Motor learning results from neural adaptations that produce refinements of behavioural features of motor tasks.

  • Motor learning can induce changes in visual processing that are associated with the refinements of skilled limb movement.
  • The interactions between skilled limb movements and visual search lead to coordinated patterns of the eyes and limbs (ie., hand-eye...
