Abstract

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.
