Becoming an expert: Ontogeny of expertise as an example of neural reuse
Cambridge University Press
School of Arts and Humanities
In this commentary, we discuss an important pattern of results in the literature on the neural basis of expertise: (a) decrease of cerebral activation at the beginning of acquisition of expertise and (b) functional cerebral reorganization as a consequence of years of practice. We show how these two results can be integrated with the neural reuse framework.
