In this review, focus is given to the cognitive brain functions associated with motor learning and the control of learned motor behavior, as revealed by non-invasive studies in humans. After providing a definition of motor control and learning, the tasks adopted in previous studies are first introduced, and some important findings about motor behavior and pertinent theoretical models are described. Relying mainly on findings from the event-related potential (ERP) technique, but also from neuroimaging, this review focuses on motor learning and motor control in skilled action, with an emphasis on movement preparation and performance monitoring.
