Brain & Skill

I read very interesting article about how our brain is divided into different section that controls different things; such a part that control the memory and another part that control the motor skill. For instance, even if an Alzheimer patient loses her memory, she could still eat and walk and perhaps drive. The different part of skill that the brain does not forget.

But I think for many skills like language or playing the guitar, one has to constantly play or practice them to be good at them. You can’t simply pick up a guitar after 10 years of not playing and expect to be playing smoothly again. Or maybe you could?
