  • Objectives: Walking is a well-practiced skill but requires adapting steps online to meet external constraints. The objective of this study was to examine the effects of types of practice schedules (i.e., blocked versus random practice) on the process of adapting and generalizing motor actions. Methods: To examine how practice schedules influence the process of adaptation and generalization during walking, 60 young, healthy adults walked to normal, slow, and fast metronome paces: 30 with blocked… CONTINUE READING
