Self-controlling practice implies a process of decision making, which suggests that the options in a self-controlled practice condition could affect learners. The number of task components with no fixed position in a movement sequence may affect the way learners self-control their practice. A 200-cm coincident timing track with 90 light-emitting diodes(More)
The elaboration of learning strategies has been considered a key factor to explain sensorimotor learning gains obtained in self-scheduled practice conditions. Nevertheless, the effect of prior knowledge of the testing context (i.e., the learning goal) on that process has been neglected. This study sought to determine whether: (a) learners in a(More)
Considering the critical role permanence has on predictions related to the contextual interference effect, this study sought to determine whether the manifestation of the effect depends on the time interval separating the acquisition phase (AQ) from the retention test (RT). Four groups of blocked (BL) and four groups of random practice (RD) performed 90(More)
Efficiency in front-crawl stroke has been inferred primarily by means of the analysis of arm actions, specifically, stroke frequency and stroke length. The objective of the present study was to investigate whether swimming efficiency could be better assessed in children still learning the front-crawl stroke by analyzing the movement pattern as a whole.(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different types of practice on learning the o soto gari, focusing on the kuzushi (unbalancing the opponent). A total of 64 children (mean age 9.19 ± 1.41 years) were assigned to one of four groups: (1) static traditional practice, i.e., uchikomi - repetition of the moving pattern that characterises the(More)
