Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objective: The main goal of the study was to use the human lesion method approach to explore
the putative association between posterior parietal cortex and skill learning.
Methods: 16 subjects with chronic unilateral damage to the posterior parietal cortex (PPC) and 33
subjects with chronic unilateral damage to other cortical areas not involving the parietal cortex
(OCA) with comparable demographic characteristics were drawn from the Patient Registry of the
Division of Behavioral Neurology and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Iowa Carver
College of Medicine. Posterior parietal cortex was defined as parietal cortex posterior to the postcentral
sulcus. Patients with multiple lesions or with damage to the cerebellum or the basal ganglia
were not included. All PPC and OCA participants underwent thorough neurological, neuroimaging,
and behavioral examinations. Behavioral data were also collected from 30 healthy
demographically comparable subjects recruited in the community (HC group). The behavioral
assessment included three skill learning paradigms (i.e., Mirror Reading, Mirror Tracing, and Rotary
Pursuit).
Results: The PPC group had significantly (p<.05) poorer baseline performance than the other
groups on the mirror reading task. A similar trend (p<.1) was found regarding the mirror tracing
task. The baseline performances on the rotary pursuit were not statistically different between
groups. However, PPC participants showed reduced improvement with practice on the rotary
pursuit task (p<.05), but not on the mirror reading and mirror tracing tasks. No clear associations
were found with lesion side.
Conclusions: The preliminary results suggest that the contribution of the posterior parietal cortex
to skill learning varies with stage of practice and with task requirements. In the initial stages of
practice, this cortical area appears to be particularly involved in tasks that require visuo-spatial
transformations (e.g., mirror reading and mirror tracing), but its contribution to the early
performance of visuomotor tracking tasks (e.g., rotary pursuit) does not seem to be critical.
However, the opposite associations were found after extended practice (i.e., damage to posterior
parietal cortex was related to impaired learning of visuomotor tracking skills, but not with
impaired learning of perceptual and perceptual-motor adaptation skills).
Discussion: Prior to this research project, no human lesion study had systematically analysed the
putative involvement of the posterior parietal cortex in learning different perceptual and
perceptual-motor skills. The reported results corroborate and extend findings from functional
neuroimaging studies.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
There is extensive evidence and it is widely recognized that motor skill learning is spared in patients with dense amnesia. However, the neural substrates of motor skill learning are a continuing topic of research and a current matter of debate. This review focuses on the differential contribution of the striatum and the cerebellum to learning skills that require either motor sequence or motor adaptation. A brief overview of the current knowledge helps understand why certain patient populations, such as patients with Parkinson's disease and patients with cerebellar ataxia, experience difficulty with motor skill acquisition.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study aimed to produce adjusted normative data for the Portuguese version of the Auditory Verbal Learning Test (AVLT). The study included 1,068 community-dwelling individuals (736 women, 332 men) aged 18 to 93 years old (Mage = 56 years, SD = 18) who had educational backgrounds ranging from 0 to 24 years (M = 9.8 years, SD = 5.3). The results showed that sex, age, and education were significantly associated with AVLT performance. These demographic characteristics accounted for 24% to 35% of the variance of direct recall trials and for 8% to 39% of the variance of derived recall scores. The normative data for direct and derived recall scores are presented as regression-based algorithms to adjust for sex, age, and education with subsequent correspondence between adjusted scores and percentile distribution. The norms for the recognition correct score are presented as algorithms to estimate the recognition scores for 5th, 10th, and 18th percentiles for each combination of the variables sex, age, and education.

https://www.bial.com/imagem/Grant20108.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
The current knowledge on the neural basis for acquiring non-declarative information is still limited. Evidence from different lines of research suggests that the neural structures involved in motor skill learning depend on task demands and learning stage. The contribution of the parietal cortex to motor skill learning is not fully understood.
AIM
This study evaluated the consequences of damage to the parietal lobe for learning a visuomotor tracking skill.
METHOD
Thirty subjects with a single unilateral brain lesion (13 with and 17 without parietal damage) and 23 demographically comparable healthy subjects performed the Rotary Pursuit task.
RESULTS
For each group, time on target increased significantly across the four learning blocks. Subjects with parietal lesions had smaller improvements on the Rotary Pursuit from the 1st to the 4th block than subjects with lesions in other brain areas and healthy comparison subjects. The improvements on task performance from the 1st to the 2nd and from the 1st to the 3rd learning blocks were similar between groups.
CONCLUSIONS
The parietal lobe appears to play an important role in the acquisition of a new visuomotor tracking skill, in particular during a relatively late phase of learning.

BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Title:
Parietal damage impairs learning of a visuo motor tracking skill
Publication year: 2015

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study evaluated the consequences of damage to the parietal lobe for learning a visuomotor tracking skill. Thirty subjects with a single unilateral brain lesion (13 with and 17 without parietal damage) and 23 demographically comparable healthy subjects performed the Rotary Pursuit task. For each group, time on target increased significantly across the four learning blocks. Subjects with parietal lesions had smaller improvements on the Rotary Pursuit from the 1st to the 4th block than subjects with lesions in other brain areas and healthy comparison subjects. The improvements on task performance from the 1st to the 2nd and from the 1st to the 3rd learning blocks were similar between groups. The parietal lobe appears to play an important role in the acquisition of a new visuomotor tracking skill, in particular during a relatively late phase of learning.
