Motor Learning and Performance Summary

Motor Learning and Performance by Richard A. Schmidt

This third edition of Motor Learning and Performance expands on the fundamental principles of motor performance and learning, applying theoretical principles to a variety of realistic contexts. It continues to combine a conceptual model of human performance with a problem-based learning approach. This approach provides a comprehensive model to identify effective solutions to a wide range of practical problems in the performance and learning of motor skills. This book is designed so that readers don't need prerequisites in physiology, psychology, statistical methods or other basic sciences in order to understand the material. It provides a fascinating introduction to the field of motor learning and its many practical applications.
