Prefrontal-basal ganglia pathways are involved in the learning of arbitrary visuomotor associations: a PET study.

Abstract:

Primates can learn to associate sensory cues with particular movements according to arbitrary rules. We used positron emission tomography (PET) to study the neural network involved in learning such arbitrary associations by trial and error. Ten subjects were scanned at four different stages of learning a visuomotor conditional task (VC). The subjects were required to associate four different visual patterns, presented one at a time, with four different finger movements. Scan 1 was acquired du...
