Foundations of Motor Control
SAR HP 771
The course includes discussion and synthesis of current theories of human action (performance, learning/plasticity, and development) with an emphasis on systems/constraints, dynamical systems and ecological psychology approaches to human action, perception, and action-perception coupling. It serves as an introduction to these theories. Emphasis is placed on understanding how to conceptualize and evaluate functional movement based on these theories. Student participation in class is essential and required reading should be completed prior to class so that each student can fully participate in discussion.
