Motor Development: A New Synthesis.
Thelen, Esther
American Psychologist, v50 n2 p79-95 Feb 1995
Discusses the renaissance of motor skill acquisition studies that are affording new insights into the processes by which infants and children learn to control their bodies. The article explains how studies are now focusing less on how children perform and more on how the components cooperate to produce stability or engender change, thus making traditional nature-nurture debates irrelevant.
