January 3, 2017 It’s well-known that physical training in 1 hand can result in performance gains in the opposite, untrained hand—a phenomenon known as intermanual transfer—and that using a mirror to make it look as if the untrained hand is moving can speed up the process. But now researchers claim that allowing a subject to “see” the untrained hand move by way of virtual reality (VR) can further enhance the gains, and light up the neural networks that make it possible.
