PMID-8717039[0] Consolidation in human motor memory

  • tested interference between the learning of two motor skills
    • no interference if the delay between practice on each task was > 4 hours
    • this implies that some memory consolodation occurs within those 4 hours.. the same as previous work which implicated the medial temporal lobe as an important region for memory encoding.
  • found with MIT open course ware -- there are a lot of good papers referenced there.
