    Inhibition of protein synthesis in M1 of monkeys disrupts performance of sequential movements guided by memory

    Machiko Ohbayashi
    Inhibition of protein synthesis in primary motor cortex (M1) of monkeys disrupted the performance of skilled sequential movements suggesting that M1 is involved in maintenance of skilled sequential movements.

    Corticostriatal dynamics encode the refinement of specific behavioral variability during skill learning

    Fernando J Santos et al.
    Recordings from the mouse brain as animals learn a lever pressing task reveal how the motor system optimizes skill learning by reducing variability in those aspects of task performance that are essential for achieving a goal.
