[The mechanisms of motor learning].

[Article in Russian]


In the paper the general principles of the motor learning are analyzed. A thesis is argued that instrumental conditioning is the basis of the motor learning, but the mechanisms of insight and the apparatus of anticipation of the action result also play an important role. At comparison of some theories of learning a hypothesis is suggested about the possibility of synthetic approach. Two stages can be distinguished in the process of the motor learning: formation of semantic and coordination programs. Formation and realization of learned movements opposite to the initial coordinations are constantly controlled by the motor cortex, which realizes the learned inhibition of the interfering coordinations.
