[private] muscle memory is huge. It is a nice, non-scienctific term for brain plasticity. It is THE function that allows us to walk, talk, and chew gum at the same time. If you loose the brain connections for balance and walking, there is no way to think about walking while walking AND do anything else. Basically, if one does a motion enough times, the brain connections are stronger for the recently practiced action than the prior, less desired action. From the brain science i have read, i understand the brain is actively making and repurposing neural connections lifelong. The chemical soup our brains bathe in controls how easily connections are formed and reformed. Too easily, and skill retention is sacrificed, too hard, and the time to basic competency is exponentially increased. mastery often means the entire skill has moved to non-concious control, so the skills occur without
thought and the skill can be broken down into pieces for analysis to increase the unconcious mastery.
