Methodological Advances in Motor Learning and Development

Keith R. Lohse

than another (e.g., I study motor behavior more than neural control of movement), but we should all appreciate the balance between different levels of analysis ( Poggio, 2012 ). As our research questions change, so to do our measures, methods, and theories. Neurophysiology is important, but psychology

On Primitives in Motor Control

Mark L. Latash

of this concept compatible with the approach to the neural control of movement based on laws of nature, the physical approach. The notion of primitives has been used in fields other than motor control, in particular in studies of perception (e.g.,  Logothetis & Sheinberg, 1996 ) and cognition (e

et al., 2012 ). These age-related differences may be due, in part, to age-related changes in balance control, physical fitness, neuromuscular function, and neural control of movement ( Zapparoli et al., 2022 ), which play a large role in motor skill learning. Despite these concerns, we chose to

Intramuscle Synergies: Their Place in the Neural Control Hierarchy

Optimality, Stability, and Agility of Human Movement: New Optimality Criterion and Trade-Offs

Mark L. Latash

based on two important developments. The first is the theory of the neural control of movement with time-varying spatial referent coordinates (RC) for the involved effectors (reviewed in Feldman, 2015 ; Latash, 2010 , 2019 , 2021b ), which is based on the classical equilibrium point hypothesis

The History and Future of Neuromusculoskeletal Biomechanics

David G. Lloyd, Ilse Jonkers, Scott L. Delp, and Luca Modenese

-intensity tasks. 98 , 99 As we will see, the concept of motor units is now embedded in neuromusculoskeletal modeling. Studies of the neural control of movement have been enabled by electromyography (EMG). Supported by conceptual and mathematical models, 100 research showed that the orderly motor unit
