Motor learning & performance

The research of this programme focuses on how perceptual-motor control at the different time scales of development, learning and peak performance is brought about by the constraints on the actor-environment system.

The main objective of the current programme is to identify the relative contribution of these constraints to perceptual-motor control and their changes therein at the different time scales. The core of the research lies with the interaction between the task (e.g., object properties, task instructions) and organismic constraints (e.g., brain damage, anxiety) with special emphasis on the use of perceptual information.
