Abstract

The goal of the present study was to investigate electrophysiologic, qEEG, changes when individuals were exposed to a motor task. Subjects brain electrical activity was analyzed before and after the typewriting training task. For the neurophysiological variable asymmetry, a paired t-test was performed to compare each moment, pre and post-task, in the beta bands. The findings showed a change for the qEEG variable in each scalp site, F3/F4; C3/C4 and P3/P4. These results suggest an adaptation of pre-frontal, sensory-motor and parietal cortex, as a consequence of the typewriting training.
