What are the neural mechanisms of skill acquisition? In this podcast, Editor-in-Chief Bill Yates talks with Xiao Zhou (Carnegie Mellon University) and Steve Chase (Carnegie Mellon University) about their recent study, which leveraged a brain-computer interface learning paradigm to track the neural reorganization occurring throughout the full time course of motor skill learning lasting several weeks. Listen to learn about the distinct types of reorganization, BCI techniques, the relationship between motor error and skill learning, and more!
