Motor learning deficits associated with autism may be the result of reduced levels of noradrenaline release in the primary motor cortex.
Neurons in the caudal pedunculopontine nucleus, an area of the brain that regulates motor coordination, switch neurotransmitters from acetylcholine to GABA as a result of exercise. The switch appears to provide feedback control that regulates motor coordination and skill learning.
Learning new still does not necessarily help to repair neurological damage following a stroke, a new study reports.
Researchers report cells in the brain’s dorsal raphe nucleus use visual clues to assess whether attempts at movement have been effective.
A new study reports the ability to learn movements relies upon the brain's control of sensory neurons in muscles.
Researchers study the link between imagery and how it impacts motor learning and sports performance.
