MONTOYA HURTADO, Olga Lucia; SERNA, Gladys Iliana  and  MARTINEZ MORENO, Oswal. Auditory Perception Processes and Motor learning. Bibliographic review. MHSalud [online]. 2022, vol.19, n.1, pp.87-98. ISSN 1659-097X.


At the neurophysiological level, the cerebellum, the basal ganglia, and the limbic system are important in the coordination and memory of movement.


Understanding the processes involved in the sensoperceptive relationship of hearing and motor learning is a permanent motivation of different disciplines.


A documentary review is presented; it aims to analyze the relationship between auditory perception and motor learning using content analysis from the perspectives of audiology, medicine, and neurorehabilitation. The keywords and combinations taken into account were the following: hearing perception, learning, balance, coordination, and combinations hearing-learning, hearing-balance, and hearing-coordination. The databases and metasearchers Pubmed, Medscape, Trip, ScienceDirect, EBSCOhost, Pedro, Scielo, and Lilacs were used. Virtual libraries such as SINAB, Cochrane, University of Malaga, UsNational Library of Medicine, and National Institutes of Health were also consulted. We selected 22 articles that met the inclusion criteria.


A relationship was found between auditory perception and motor learning in the communication of auditory and motor sensory information at the level of processing in the cerebellum and basal ganglia, being a fundamental part of the retention and motor transfer.


In the motor learning process involving the experience of movement, we propose the participation of hearing by integrating the perceived signals -visual, auditory, motor, and vestibular- that are concretized to improve learning, making it more effective, generating a more lasting memory.

Keywords : auditory perception; learning; postural balance.
