A schema theory of discrete motor skill learning.
A number of closed-loop postulations to explain motor skills learning and performance phenomena have appeared recently, but each of these views suffers from either (a) logical problems in explaining
Motor Control and Learning: A Behavioral Emphasis
This chapter discusses the evolution of a field of study, methodology for Studying, and methods for studying human information processing and motor learning.
New Conceptualizations of Practice: Common Principles in Three Paradigms Suggest New Concepts for Training
We argue herein that typical training procedures are far from optimal. The goat of training in real-world settings is, or should be, to support two aspects of posttraining performance: (a) the level
Motor-output variability: a theory for the accuracy of rapid motor acts.
A theory of motor-output variability that accounts for the relationship among the movement amplitude, movement time, the mass to be moved, and the resulting movement error is presented.
Knowledge of results and motor learning: a review and critical reappraisal.
A number of new relations emerge between KR and both learning and performance, and it is emphasized that it also acts as guidance, enhancing performance when it is present but degrading learning if it is given too frequently.
Principles of motor learning in treatment of motor speech disorders.
Evidence from nonspeech motor learning suggests that various principles may interact with each other and differentially affect diverse aspects of movements, and available evidence suggests that these principles hold promise for treatment of motor speech disorders.
Motor Learning and Performance
Part I An Introduction to Motor Performance and Learning: Principles of Human Skilled Performance and learning, and how to apply the principles of Skill Learning.
Motor learning and performance : a situation-based learning approach
This chapter discusses the principles of Skill Learning as well as practical suggestions for promoting and facilitating learning and performance in the rapidly changing environment.
Frequent Augmented Feedback Can Degrade Learning: Evidence and Interpretations
The role of augmented information feedback for motor learning has been evaluated recently by an examination of its role on performance on transfer or retention tests. Several lines of evidence from
