Prospective Control: A Basic Aspect of Action Development.
von Hofsten, Claes
Human Development, v36 n5 p253-70 Sep-Oct 1993
Argues that the developmental origins of actions are actions themselves and that a future-oriented mode of control is basic to movement at all ages. Suggests that, through active movement, children learn about changing and invariant properties of movement and about coordination with the external world. This learning constitutes the foundation of motor skill. (BC)
