One trial motor learning -- 5. Individual differences in skill acquisition of motor skills -- 6. Decision training: cognitive strategies for enhancing motor performance -- 7. Understanding the role of augmented feedback: the good, the bad and the ugly -- 8. Instructions, demonstrations and the learning process: creating and constraining movement options -- 9. Observational learnng: is it time we took another look? -- 10. Implicit motor learning, reinvestment and movement disruption: what you don't know won't hurt you -- 11. Deliberate practice and expert performance: defining the path to excellence -- 12. A life-span model of the acquisition and retention of expert perceptual-motor performance -- 13. Psychological and related indices of attention during motor skill acquisition -- 14. From novice to expert performance: memory, attention, and the control of complex sensorimotor skills -- 15. Perceptual and cognitive expertise in sport: implications for skill acquisition and performance enhancement -- 16. The evolution of coordination during skill acquisition: the dynamical systems approach -- 17. Perceptual learning is mastering degrees of freedom -- 18. Musculoskeletal constraints on the acquisition of motor skills -- 19. Emergence of sports skills under constraints
Summary "Skill Acquisition in Sport will be of interest to those involved in motor behaviour work in the sport and movement sciences, as well as physical therapy, ergonomics and human factors. This book will appeal to students, academics and practitioners, given both its discussion of current and complex issues in motor behaviour and recommendations for effective practice in the field."--BOOK JACKET
