Both genetic and extrinsic factors influence normal and abnormal embryonic and fetal growth
The growth process begins the instant an ovum (egg) and spermatozoon fuse in fertilization. Carried out under the control of genes, early development is astonishingly precise. Genes, then, determine the normal aspects of development and inherited abnormal development.
Consider and assess posture and balance across the lifespan
Postural control and balance are perfect examples of perception and action as an ecosystem. To control our posture in order to sit, stand, or assume any desired position, we must continually change our motor response patterns according to the perceptual information that specifies the environment and our bodies’ orientation in it.
Easing the transition into retirement
Although this chapter focuses on the influence of exercise on psychological well-being, many highly competitive athletes confront psychological issues when they transition out of sport. Much has been written and many models have been developed regarding the psychological issues that occur when transitioning out of competitive sport (Alferman & Stambulova, 2007; Lavalle, Park, & Tod, 2013; Stambulova, Alfermann, Statler, & Cote, 2009).
Pushing an athlete: how much is too much?
In addition to stress, sport psychologists working with injured athletes have identified certain attitudes that predispose players to injury. Rotella and Heyman (1986) observed that attitudes held by some coaches - such as "Act tough and always give 110%" or "If you’re injured, you’re worthless" - can increase the probability of athlete injury.
Understand the best way to motivate athletes
Each of us develops a personal view of how motivation works, our own model on what motivates people. We are likely to do this by learning what motivates us and by observing how other people are motivated. For instance, if someone has a physical education teacher she likes and believes is successful, she will probably try to use or emulate many of the same motivational strategies that the teacher uses.
Understand the development of catching skills
Several manipulative skills are basic to sport performance. In these skills, a performer must gain possession or control of an object by reaching to intercept a moving object or stopping it with an implement.
