This review of human motor skills is historical and critical, and starts about 100 years ago. Three historical periods are identified. The main topics are knowledge of results, distribution of practice, transfer of training, retention, and individual differences in motor learning. Basic research is emphasized, but applied research is included also. The article concludes with projections for the future that are based on past research and the present research climate. Why review nearly a century… 
Always Pay Attention to Which Model of Motor Learning You Are Using
TLDR
An in-depth review of contemporary motor learning approaches is provided, with a pragmatism-oriented clarification of the researcher’s intentions on fundamentals, subjects, time intervals, and purpose.
Long-term retention of a simple motor skill.
Ammons, Douglas, Masters, 1988 Psychology Long-term retention of a simple motor skill Director: Laurence H. Berger Historically in motor skills research, there has been an emphasis on acquisition and
An adaptive process model of motor learning: insights for the teaching of motor skills.
TLDR
An outline of a non-equilibrium model, in which motor learning is explained as a continuous process of stabilization and adaptation, is presented, and propositions derived from this model have been tested and discussed.
Long-term retention of a motor skill: Implicit sequence knowledge is not retained after a one-year delay
Experimental work shows that some motor skills are retained well over a long delay and others are not. It is possible that motor tasks that are primarily implicit are retained over long intervals,
Knowledge of results and motor learning--implications for physical therapy.
TLDR
It is suggested that it is appropriate to use the principles obtained through laboratory experimentation as guidelines rather than as exact recommendations when applying basic research findings to clinical practice.
Study on correlation between motor and memory learning
TLDR
The results showed that, after adjusting for the initial conditions, the group of subjects who received CR with 100% FR and who had to formulate the SS during the practice period, performed the retention test in a significantly better way.
Knowledge of Results and Motor Implications for Physical Therapy Learning
Relevant to this special series on movement science, a brief overview of research in theJieId of motor learning is provided. A distinction between learning and pe@ormance is emphasized with respect

TLDR
Suggestions are made that certain variables (such as task organization and the scoring method used) should be considered as key variables in any research program dealing with the long-term retention of skills.
