Abstract:The Parkinson's disease patients performed normally on both motor sequence learning tasks despite clear evidence of motor impairments demonstrable through independent clinical and neuropsychological testing. The results from the Parkinson's disease patients are the first to demonstrate normal motor sequence learning in the same patients on two separate tasks, each employing two response systems known to be affected by this disease process. These results challenge the popular claim that the neostriatum is the critical locus of sequence learning, and are discussed in terms of the possible neural circuitry for motor sequence learning.
