Abstract

We reported electrophysiological evidence for frontal-lobe dominance in visuomotor learning (1–3) recently. Increased cortical negativity during learning (when compared with adequate controls) as correlated to success in task Performance. An affect of hemisphere specializa-tion was found. To confirm these findings, we investigated verbal cognitive learning.
