In the last few decades, a modest number of empirical investigations have been designed to identify factors influencing the use of visual information as a function of practice.
Vision and Goal-Directed Movement eBook
One of the classic controversies in motor control is the extent to which discrete goal-directed movements unfold as planned or are modified based on response-produced feedback or changing environmental demands.
Fundamentals of Motor Behavior eBook
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.
Motor Control and Learning 5th Edition eBook
One of the most frequently used and advocated off-task methods to promote learning is mental practice, in which the performance of a task is mentally rehearsed, but is this as effective as physical practice?
The Athlete's Clock eBook
In athletes, stride rhythm is often coupled with breathing while running, walking, cycling, or rowing. This is called entrainment of ventilation and locomotion.
Motor Learning and Development
Researchers and practitioners, as well as social critics, have addressed why the timely and appropriate acquisition of fundamental movement skills is crucial to the development of young children.
Motor Control in Everyday Actions
How are constant error, variable error, and absolute error useful for understanding motor control?
Advanced Analysis of Motor Development
Here we focus on the development of striking, throwing, and kicking. Most developmental studies on ballistic projectile skills have been based in developmental sequence theory, although a few studies are beginning to address issues from a dynamic systems perspective.
Advanced Analysis of Motor Development eBook
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.
Motor Learning and Performance 5th Edition eBook With Web Study Guide
One useful addition to the collection of activities in a practice session is to ask the learner to rehearse skills to be learned mentally, without performing actual, overt physical practice.
