Wistar rats were trained to retrieve a sunflower seed from a horizontal tube using a forelimb. Animals which demonstrated motor asymmetry were selected, and their training conditions were changed. The horizontal tube was replaces by that with a slot in the bottom in such a way that improperly seized seeds dropped out of the tube. Dynamic reorganization of motor coordination under these changed conditions was investigated. The appreciable individual variability of dynamics of formation of new motor coordination was revealed.
