The aim of the present study was to investigate the cerebral changes following a motor attention training, i.e. exercises that combine both motor and cognitive components. The training consisted in learning a motor sequence; subjects were asked to focalize on movement and kinesthetic perception. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to assess preand post-training brain activity, in order to detect the effect of the exercises: significant modifications were found in brain areas involved in divided and sustained attention, motor intention and planning.

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to investigate the cerebral changes following a motor attention training, i.e. exercises that combine both motor and cognitive components. The training consisted in learning a motor sequence; subjects were asked to focalize on movement and kinesthetic perception. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to assess preand post-training brain activity, in order to detect the effect of the exercises: significant modifications were found in brain areas involved in divided and sustained attention, motor intention and planning.
