- Specific increases within global decreases: a functional magnetic resonance imaging investigation of five days of motor sequence learningChristopher J Steele
Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec H4B 1R6, Canada
J Neurosci 30:8332-41. 2010..Finally, functional connectivity between M1 and cerebellum in late learning points to their interaction as a mechanism underlying the long-term representation and expression of a well learned skill...
- Early musical training and white-matter plasticity in the corpus callosum: evidence for a sensitive periodChristopher J Steele
Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H4B 1R6
J Neurosci 33:1282-90. 2013..We propose that training before the age of 7 years results in changes in white-matter connectivity that may serve as a scaffold upon which ongoing experience can build...
- Parallel contributions of cerebellar, striatal and M1 mechanisms to motor sequence learningVirginia B Penhune
Laboratory for Motor Learning and Neural Plasticity, Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Canada
Behav Brain Res 226:579-91. 2012..M1 acts to store the representation of a learned sequence, likely as part of a distributed network including the parietal lobe and premotor cortex...
- Gesture imitation in musicians and non-musiciansMichael J Spilka
Department of Psychology, Concordia University, 7141 Sherbrooke St W, Montreal, QC H4B 1R6, Canada
Exp Brain Res 204:549-58. 2010..It is also likely that musical training contributed to the ability to imitate manual gestures by influencing the personal action repertoire of musicians...
