During the learning of a new sensorimotor task, individuals are usually provided with instructional stimuli and relevant information about the target task. The inclusion of haptic devices in the study of this kind of learning has greatly helped in the understanding of how an individual can improve or acquire new skills. However, the way in...

Robots can aid in post-stroke motor function recovery and motor learning through the use of haptic feedback during collaborative training. A clear objective in robotic-assisted motor learning is to adapt the haptic feedback to individual users, but personal characteristics are not yet considered in this adaptation. <br/><br/>We investigated the...

Feedback error learning (FEL) is a classical computational model that describes human motor learning. It consists of forward and inverse models representing internal dynamics and environmental disturbances. Such models can be used as controllers that represent the function of the motor cortex. On top of FEL, a model has been built with jointly...

In order to improve skill acquisition and neurorehabilitation, we need to improve our understanding of human motor learning. It has been shown that innate variability of movements made by an individual when performing a motor task (motor variability) might enhance skill acquisition. Augmenting motor variability could therefore be a promising...

BACKGROUND: Current robot-aided training allows for high-intensity training but might hamper the transfer of learned skills to real daily tasks. Many of these tasks, e.g., carrying a cup of coffee, require manipulating objects with complex dynamics. Thus, the absence of somatosensory information regarding the interaction with virtual objects...

The use of robots has attracted researchers to design numerous haptic training methods to support motor learning. However, investigations of new methods yielded inconclusive results regarding their effectiveness to enhance learning due to the diversity of tasks, haptic designs, participants skill level, and study protocols. In this review, we...

Learning a new motor task is a complex cognitive and motor process. Especially early during motor learning, cognitive functions such as attentional engagement, are essential, e.g., to discover relevant visual stimuli. Drawing participant’s attention towards task-relevant stimuli—e.g., with task instructions using visual cues or explicit...

Neurophysiologic correlates of motor learning that can be monitored during neurorehabilitation interventions can facilitate the development of more effective learning methods. Previous studies have focused on the role of the beta band (14–30 Hz) because of its clear response during motor activity. However, it is difficult to discriminate...

Despite recent advances in robot-assisted training, the benefits of haptic guidance on motor (re)learning are still limited. While haptic guidance may increase task performance during training, it may also decrease participants' effort and interfere with the perception of the environment dynamics, hindering somatosensory information crucial...

Motor learning has been linked with increases in corticospinal excitability (CSE). However, the robustness of this link is unclear. In this study, changes in CSE associated with learning a visuomotor tracking task were mapped using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS maps were obtained before and after training with the first dorsal...

Neurologically impaired patients can regain motor function by engaging in rehabilita- tion. Currently there is no conclusive evidence that robotic rehabilitation has better clinical results than conventional rehabilitation but robotic rehabil- itation has the potential to increase efficiency and patient motivation, justifying improvement of reha...

Complex motions are generally accepted as movements which consists of at least 2 Degrees of Freedom (DoFs) actuated in a coordinated manner, which takes more than one practice session to be mastered, and that are ecologically valid (see Wulf et al. 2002 for a clear statement). <br/><br/>The techniques to teach and re-teach (also, (re-)learn) a...

The objective of this study was to investigate the learning process of knee osteoarthritis (KOA) patients learning to change their foot progression angle (FPA) over a six-week toe-in gait training program. Sixteen patients with medial KOA completed a six-week toe-in gait training program with real-time biofeedback. Patients walked on an...

Human movement relies on noisy processes in neurons, muscle cells and sensory cells. Therefore, movements are variable and can never be exactly reproduced. The nervous system seems to exploit this movement noise for motor learning and specifically motor adaptation. However, a positive relation between movement noise and motor adaptation has not...

Both motor imagery and mirror training have been used in motor rehabilitation settings to promote skill learning and plasticity. As motor imagery and mirror training are suggested to be closely linked, it was hypothesized that mirror training augmented by motor imagery would increase corticospinal excitability (CSE) significantly compared to...

Background To propel in an energy-efficient manner, handrim wheelchair users must learn to control the bimanually applied forces onto the rims, preserving both speed and direction of locomotion. Previous studies have found an increase in mechanical efficiency due to motor learning associated with changes in propulsion technique, but it is...

Endpoint stiffness is known to increase in the direction of instability during learning to accurately execute unstable motor tasks. Reflexes might be present in the time interval used for endpoint stiffness calculations suggesting a possible influence of reflexes on endpoint stiffness measurements. In addition, changes of reflexes during motor...
