Motor skill learning yields an enhanced ability to achieve goals by improving the spatial and temporal accuracy of movements. The motor system learns how the body interacts with the world and uses this knowledge to produce the forces needed to reach single or sequential targets. It does so, in part, by learning to correct both previous and ongoing errors. Neural networks involving parietal cortex, motor cortex, and cerebellum correct errors made on previous movements; those involving cortex and basal ganglia correct ongoing movements. These and other networks acquire and produce practiced sequences of movements through both explicit and implicit learning. © 2009 Published by null.
