MOTOR BEHAVIOUR IN SPORT
Credit points: 15
In this subject, you will develop an understanding of the theoretical basis of motor behaviour and its application to sport and exercise performance. You will be introduced to the neuromuscular and sensory systems and their influence on movement in exercise, sporting, and clinical environments, techniques for measuring motor behaviour and expertise and how these techniques can be used to design best practice interventions to suit individual motor learning needs. You will also be introduced to the assessment of motor behaviour research and design a research proposal to measure specific motor behaviour outcomes.
