This unit provides students with a broad overview of motor control and learning with the aim of stimulating students to think about the mechanisms of normal human movement. Both a behavioural and a neurophysiological approach are taken to understand the acquisition and execution of skilled motor actions. The behavioural approach is directed at the process of optimizing the learning of skills. Meanwhile the neurophysiological approach is directed at the neuromuscular machinery and the functional neural connections which enable skill-acquisition to occur. Exercise Science students are advised to enrol in this unit in Semester 1. Exercise Physiology students are advised to enrol in this unit in Semester 2.
