There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject provides a conceptual and practice-oriented introduction to the neural mechanisms and performance characteristics of human movement production and motor learning. Specifically, the structure of the motor control system, the processes underlying movement control, methods of assessing muscle and nerve function, posture and balance control, and the development of coordinated movement patterns are examined through contemporary research and practice-oriented teaching.

This subject uses a mix of out-of-class pre-learning activities, practical laboratory exercises and lectures to provide students with real-world examples of theoretical frameworks involved in motor learning and control.
