Re-Education: What Can Complementary and Alternative Approaches to Movement Education Teach Kinesiology?

David I. Anderson

The goal of this special issue of Kinesiology Review is to expose kinesiology to a body of knowledge that is unfamiliar to most in the field. That body of knowledge is broad, deep, rich, and enduring. In addition, it brings with it a skill set that could be extremely helpful to professional practice, whether in teaching, coaching, training, health work, or rehabilitation. The body of knowledge and skills comes from a loosely defined field of study I have referred to as “complementary and alternative approaches to movement education” (CAAME). The field of CAAME is as diverse as the field of kinesiology. This introductory article focuses on what the field of CAAME has to teach kinesiology and what the field could learn from kinesiology. The overarching aim of the special issue is to foster dialogue and collaboration between students and scholars of kinesiology and practitioners of CAAME.

Motor Cognition: The Role of Sentience in Perception and Action

Ezequiel Morsella, Anthony G. Velasquez, Jessica K. Yankulova, Yanming Li, Christina Y. Wong, and Dennis Lambert

example of the patient with poor memory who scratches an itchy sunburn. The observation that conscious contents unchecked in this way can directly influence overt behavior in so strong a manner is consistent with the tenets of ideomotor theory, which we now discuss in brief. The Ideomotor Mechanism

Turn-Taking and Concurrent Dyad Practice Aid Efficiency but not Effectiveness of Motor Learning in a Balance-Related Task

April Karlinsky and Nicola J. Hodges

an actor in disequilibrium face-on (i.e., third-person perspective) gave rise to ‘imitative’ movements, such that the observer showed a propensity for ‘mirrored’ movements ( Sebanz & Shiffrar, 2007 ). Such observation-induced movements have been referred to as ‘ideomotor movements,’ due to the link

The Cognitive Structure of the Basketball Free Throw in Adolescent Physical Education Students

Aaron England, Timothy Brusseau, Ryan Burns, Dirk Koester, Maria Newton, Matthew Thiese, and Benjamin Chase

adolescent population unclear. The ideomotor approach ( Koch, Keller, & Prinz, 2004 ), the theory of event coding ( Hommel, 2009 ), and the anticipative behavioral control approach ( Hoffmann, Stoecker, & Kunde, 2004 ) stress the goal directedness of actions and the importance of anticipated outcomes in

The Imitation Game in Children With Tourette Syndrome: A Lack of Impulse Control to Mirror Environmental Stimuli

Game 2 consisted of meaningless finger movements and hand–limb movements taken from the Ideomotor Apraxia test

ideomotor apraxia in persons with AD at all stages of the disease ( Sheridan & Hausdorff, 2007 ). In particular, persons with AD have been shown to have shorter step length, slower gait speed and stepping frequency, greater step-to-step variability, and larger sway relative to healthy, age-matched older

). Acquisition of motor skills is dependent on neuronal plasticity both at the cortical and subcortical levels in the central nervous system ( Kakavas et al., 2020 ). Therefore, we can speculate, that a high quality of gnostic function and ideomotor functions, and perfect body scheme is one prerequisite for
