Motor Learning and Performance, Hardback Book


This is the updated edition of the classic introduction to motor control and learning.

Significantly updated, Motor Learning and Performance describes the principles of motor performance and learning in a style that is accessible even to students with little or no knowledge of physiology, psychology, statistical methods and other basic sciences.

This text outlines the basics of motor skill learning, building a strong understanding of how skills are acquired and perfected through practice and how to apply the concepts to a variety of real-world settings.

Additionally, the text examines some of the neurological and biomechanical processes that create complex movement behaviours, reflecting the convergence toward a shared understanding across the fields of motor behaviour and motor learning, motor control and biomechanics.
