Motor control
Motor control is the process by which humans and animals use their neuromuscular system to activate and coordinate the muscles and limbs involved in the performance of a motor skill. Fundamentally, it...
Amazing Contact Juggling: Object Manipulation
The techniques found in contact juggling, such as balancing or rolling a single ball or palm spinning, have been performed for centuries. Contact juggling is a form of object manipulation which focus...
Our Elegant Brain: Motor Learning In The Fast Lane
It takes a surprisingly small cluster of brain cells deep within the cerebellum to learn how to serve a tennis ball, or line up a hockey shot. Researchers at McGill University led by Kathleen Cullen f...

Motor control - University of Oregon research: Marjorie Woollacott
University of Oregon human physiology professor Marjorie Woollacott discusses her cutting-edge research into why people fall.
Motor control - Structure learning in human motor control
Imagine that you are learning several motor tasks that are all similar to each other. Can the motor system of your brain recognize the underlying common stru...
Motor system
The motor system is the part of the central nervous system that is involved with movement. It consists of the pyramidal and extrapyramidal system.
The pyramidal motor system, also called the pyra...
Action selection
Action selection is a way of characterizing the most basic problem of intelligent systems: what to do next. In artificial intelligence and computational cognitive science, "the action selection proble...
Neuronal tuning
Neuronal tuning refers to the property of brain cells by which they selectively represent a particular type of sensory, association, motor, or cognitive information. Neuronal responses are optimally t...
Motor coordination
Motor coordination is the combination of body movements created with the kinematic (such as spatial direction) and kinetic (force) parameters that result in intended actions. Motor coordination is ac...

Eye-hand coordination
Eye–hand coordination (also known as hand–eye coordination) is the coordinated control of eye movement with hand movement, and the processing of visual input to guide reaching and grasping along with ...
Handedness
Handedness is a better (faster or more precise) performance or individual preference for use of a hand. Handedness is not a discrete variable (right or left), but a continuous one that can be express...
Motor skill
A motor skill is an intentional movement involving a motor or muscular component, that must be learned and voluntarily produced to proficiently perform a goal-oriented task, according to Knapp, Newell...
Motor learning
Motor learning is a change, resulting from practice or a novel experience, in the capability for responding. It often involves improving the smoothness and accuracy of movements and is obviously neces...
Childhood development of fine motor skills
Fine motor skills are the coordination of small muscle movements which occur e.g., in the fingers, usually in coordination with the eyes. In application to motor skills of hands (and fingers) the term...

Illusions of self-motion
Illusions of self-motion refers to a phenomenon that occurs when someone feels like their body is moving when no movement is taking place. One can experience illusory movements of the whole body or of...
Kinesiology
Kinesiology, also known as human kinetics, is the scientific study of human movement. Kinesiology addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms. Applications of kinesiology to huma...

Anatomical terms of motion
Motion, the process of movement, is described using specific anatomical terms. Motion includes movement of organs, joints, limbs, and specific sections of the body. The terminology used, describes thi...
Overhead Throwing Motion
The overhand (or overhead) throwing motion is a single-handed throw of a projectile where the object is thrown above the shoulder.The overhand throw is a complex motor skill that involves the entire b...
