While literature has consistently demonstrated that prompting an external rather than an internal focus of attention leads to superior motor skill learning
and performance [10, 18].
The changes were especially severe in the frontal cortex, which regulates motor skill learning
, decision-making, planning, judgment, attention, risk-taking, executive function and sociality.
University of Toronto, Canada) will present new research confirming that stuttering is a neurophysiological disorder when it starts, and that adults who stutter function at the low end of a continuum of motor skill learning
His research on human learning and behavior spans multiple disciplines, including motor skill learning
, cognitive psychology and neuroscience.
Deliberate practice of skills is critical to progress from the cognitive to the associative phase of motor skill learning
and to develop expertise (Ericsson, 2004; Ericsson, Whyte, & Ward, 2007; Michelson & Manning, 2008).
Only some studies on motor skill learning
were published so far.
Visual representations as well as visual feedback are critical information transferring channels for motor skill learning
to occur (Schmidt & Lee, 2005).
Now, a fundamental principle of motor skill learning
Among these are observing behavior, understanding how people learn motor skills, capabilities and limitation, setting practice procedures, and the motor skill learning
A comparison of discovery learning and guided instructional strategies on motor skill learning
, retention, and transfer.

during mental practice in stroke.
The results of this study partially support the findings of Goldberger and Gerney (8), in which they indicated that significant differences on motor skill learning
outcome could be attributed to learning ability of the students.
