Abstract

This study investigates the modulation of frontal EEG dynamics with respect to progress in motor learning. Using a computerized visual-motor task similar to mirror drawing, our work demonstrated that overall EEG activities in all frequency bands decreased with an increase in motor task familiarity. In particular, frontal EEG activities in delta band of the whole trial and gamma band at the beginning of each trial are having a significant negative relationship with the overall familiarity level of the task. The findings suggest that frontal EEG spectra are significantly modulated during motor skill acquisition.
