AbstractAlthough neuroimaging techniques have provided vital insights into the anatomical regions involved in motor learning, the underlying changes in temporal dynamics are not well understood. Using magnetoencephalography and Hidden Markov Modelling to model the dynamics of neural oscillations on data-adaptive time-scales, we detected specific changes in movement-related sensorimotor β-activity during practice of a self-paced sequential visuo-motor task. The behaviourally-relevant neural signature generalised to another motor task, emphasising the centrality of β-activity in motor plasticity.
