Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1336. Reviews the book, Motor Learning & Performance: From Principles to Practice by Richard A. Schmidt (see record 1993-97677-000). This is an introductory text in motor performance and learning for undergraduates studying elementary motor learning or motor behavior. Schmidt sets forth a conceptual grounding of a model of human performance and builds on this throughout the text to describe motor-learning processes and the application and acquisition of skills. This is a straightforward, well-organized text that can be used by teachers, coaches, and performers, as well as students. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
