Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Discovering biological mechanisms enabling pianists to achieve skillful fingering

Researchers discovered a sensorimotor function integration mechanism that enables the skillful fingering of pianists. The group developed a system to produce tactile and proprioceptive sensation in the fingers with an electric current stimulator and an exoskeletal robot hand and developed an assessment system that evaluated the processing of each neural information in the cerebral cortex using electroencephalogram measurements and transcranial magnetic stimulation.
