The dynamics of cortical GABA in human motor learning

Abstract:

The ability to learn new motor skills is supported by plasticity in the structural and functional organisation of the primary motor cortex in the human brain.
Changes inhibitory signalling by gamma‐aminobutyric acid (GABA) are thought to be crucial in inducing motor cortex plasticity.
This study used magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to quantify the concentration of GABA in human motor cortex during a period of motor learning, as well as during a period of movement, and a period...
