Motor Control: The Heart of Kinesiology
Latash, Mark L.
Quest, v60 n1 p19-30 Feb 2008
This brief review presents the subjective view of the author on the history of motor control and its current state among the subdisciplines of kinesiology. It summarizes the current controversies and challenges in motor control and emphasizes the necessity for an adequate set of notions that would make motor control (and kinesiology) a science. Changes in the current undergraduate and graduate programs in kinesiology are suggested that would help prepare future faculty in this area. The article ends by describing the author's view on motor control in 2050. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
