Abstract

Slow negative-potential shifts in motor learning tasks were studied. Significantly, enhanced frontal negativity was found during an inverted tracking task that required learning, when it was compared to a familiar hand-tracking task (1,2). High correlations between the enhanced cortical negativity and the success of task performance were found frontally. Regarding this, complex spatial visuomotor learning was investigated.
