ABSTRACT Improving motor skills represents one of the major issues in motor control and motor learning literature. The aim of this study was to investigate which of two strategies, method of amplification of error (MAE) or direct instruction (DI), would be more beneficial for error correction of the snatch technique. Thirty well-trained male weightlifters were randomly assigned to one of three training conditions (MAE, DI and Control). The experiment took place in only one practice session in… Expand

Perceptual influences of error size on voluntary force control during a compound sinusoidal force task.
Investigation of how the size of perceived errors via visual feedback affected rate control and force gradation strategy of a designate force task found error-enhancing feedback suppressed fast target force, accentuating the use of error information to tune force output, whereas error-reducing feedback enhancedfast target force in favor of predictive force control.

Instructions for motor learning: differential effects of internal versus external focus of attention.
The effects of different types of instructions on complex motor skill learning were examined. The instructions were related either to the participant's own body movements (internal focus) or to theExpand
Differential effects of main error correction versus secondary error correction on motor pattern of running.
The results support the hypothesis that the main error can have a greater influence on the movement patterns than a secondary error and highlight that a correct diagnosis and the correction of the 'main error' are fundamental for greater run pattern improvement. Expand
