Given that there appear to be similarities in the development of different people (universality, described in chapter 1), how do we organize and understand these changes so that we can explain them and predict future development? We must look at the different theoretical perspectives on motor development; theories provide a systematic way to look at and explain developmental change. This is an excerpt from Life Span Motor Development, Fifth Edition, by Kathleen M. Haywood, PhD, and Nancy ...
Perhaps the best way to appreciate how the characteristics of dynamic systems can be used to model motor development is to see how a research team used dynamic systems to address a particular developmental issue. Thus the researchers demonstrated that change in other systems plays a role in the disappearance of the stepping reflex. While maturation of the nervous system is important in motor development, other subsystems are important to the change observed in the stepping reflex.
