A Three-phase Motor Relearning: error-potentials, motor correction and neurofeedback for memory-consolidation
Three components are embedded in relearning of motor skills: error detection, training to reduce errors, and memory consolidation of the improved motor execution. We integrate here three components that we previously reported to suggest a three stage paradigm for error detection via EEG, correction through BCI and memory consolidation of the corrected motor motion through neurofeedback memory consolidation. In our earlier work we that the characteristics of the error potential is associated with the type of error, rather than being generic, by that providing a BCI system for error correction. Another line or work showed that neurofeedback can be applied for enhanced motor memory consolidation. Here we report of the scientific feasibility a three stage protocol: error detection, BCI for motor correction and then a neurofeedback for consolidation of the corrected motion.
