PSY606 Motor Behavior

Lead Faculty: Dr Sarah Castillo

Course Description

This course examines the role of motor and biomechanical factors in performance situations. Course content includes the biomechanics of performance, linear and angular kinetics, the role of torque and force in performance, and the risks associated with biomechanical stress.

Learning Outcomes

  • Apply knowledge of sensory and perceptual processes, attention, memory, and motor control to the learning and performance of motor skills.
  • Conduct case analyses related to motor skill learning and control.
  • Demonstrate optimum performance using the principles of linear and angular kinetics, torque, and force.
  • Create a plan for minimizing biomechanical stress in one or more performance settings.
