    ..More generally, our results suggest that residual variability in well learned skills is not entirely noise but rather reflects meaningful motor exploration that can support continuous learning and optimization of performance...

    J Neurosci 32:15414-25. 2012
    ..Together, our results indicate that variable sequencing in a motor skill can reflect an end point of learning that is stably maintained via continual self-monitoring...

  1. Adaptive error correction in the adult bird song system
    Evren Tumer; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..The behavioral changes observed will be followed up through electrophysiological investigation of the song system nuclei known to be involved with sensory evaluation and motor production. ..
