Motor timing learned without motor training

Nature Neuroscience
D V MeeganR A Jacobs


Improvements due to perceptual training are often specific to the trained task and do not generalize to similar perceptual tasks. Surprisingly, given this history of highly constrained, context-specific perceptual learning, we found that training on a perceptual task showed significant transfer to a motor task. This result provides evidence for a common neural architecture underlying analysis of sensory input and control of motor output, and suggests a potential role for perception in motor development and rehabilitation.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
