Insights into the various facets of expertise of concert pianists, as well as the role their attentional focus plays in delivering a �perfect� performance.
Neurophysiological Basis of Movement-2nd Edition
Tasks that require prolonged muscle force are carried out by slow, fatigue-resistant motor units, while tasks that require a quick but short increase in muscle force are mostly performed by fast motor units.
Vision and Goal-Directed Movement
Normal functioning in everyday life requires humans to interact with moving and static objects within a visually dynamic environment.
Fundamentals of Motor Behavior
When we are compelled to act quickly, we can sometimes emphasize speed over accuracy and actually end up missing the goal of the task entirely.
The Athlete's Clock
The concept of pacing is rooted in the idea that athletes make cognitive, purposeful decisions regarding velocity based on previous experience and sensory input.
The Athlete's Clock eBook
Studies indicate a disproportionate number of professional athletes are born in the first quarter of the year, and grow up in cities with populations less than 500,000 but greater than 10,000.
Motor Control in Everyday Actions
How do product designs influence people to perform specific actions?
Motor Control in Everyday Actions eBook
What are the roles of motor error and hypervigilance in unintended acceleration accidents?
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles
The �intrasarcomere� mechanisms, such as the actin�myosin interaction, are mentioned only in passing. It is assumed that the readers are familiar with these mechanisms from courses in muscle physiology.
Advanced Analysis of Motor Development
If early developing motor differences exist, then assessment of these deficits may aid in identifying children at risk for ASD at a younger age than is currently possible.
