correlation or covariation matrices computed for arrays of experimental data. The underlying idea has been that the central nervous system (CNS) simplifies control and alleviates the (in)famous problem of motor redundancy ( Bernstein, 1947 , 1967 ) by uniting numerous variables produced by elements

The decade of research in motor development between 2007 and 2017 has reminded us of the centrality of movement in all human endeavors. This centrality has in turn reminded us that learning to move has implications for development that extend well beyond the motor domain. Tellingly, much of the

, sports, and so on) can be influenced by training. However, in contrast to athletes or dancers, the training methods of theater performers usually do not take the principles of motor learning into account. Rather, they are trained by theater pedagogues or other performers who follow their own empirical

Childhood is one of the most important phases for acquiring and refining motor skills. Children start with learning the most fundamental motor skills, such as running, jumping, and throwing. These lay the foundation for further development of more complex skills that are required in sports and

development is the importance of change . When studying human motor development, researchers focus on the process of change over time that occurs as a function of complex interactions among biological, environmental, social, and experiential (among other) systems ( Clark & Whitall, 1989 ). Whether occurring

Motor development is part of a scientific field that includes motor learning and control, sport and exercise psychology, exercise physiology, biomechanics, physical education, and other kinesiology-related domains, that study factors and mechanisms that affect human movement and “physical activity

Much of what is known about aging and motor learning has come from between-group comparisons of older (typically 65 years and older) and younger adults (typically college-aged). The current consensus is that older adults tend to retain less motor skill after practice compared to younger adults, as

Physical fitness is differentiated into several latent subscales, which are mostly based on physical fitness dimensions (i.e., strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination and sometimes speed; also referred to as motor abilities). Frequently validated

Questions about how humans develop, learn, and control a wide range of motor skills are relevant not only to researchers in motor control and learning but also to teachers, parents, coaches, engineers, and health care practitioners from a variety of fields. An entire community of motor behavior
