Studies in Motor Behavior: 75 Years of Research in Motor Development, Learning, and Control
Ulrich, Beverly D.; Reeve, T. Gilmour
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v76 n2 pS62-S70 Jun 2005
Research focused on human motor development, learning, and control has been a prominent feature in the Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport (RQES) since it was first published in 1930. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the papers in the RQES that demonstrate the journal's contributions to the study of motor development, learning, and control. The landmark study by Henry and Rogers (1960), the C. H. McCloy lectures, and theoretical and review papers in motor behavior are highlighted. The RQES has served as a significant outlet for research in development, learning, and control throughout its 75-year history. The convergence of the theories, research methods and analytical tools lead to the proposition that these three areas have evolved into a field best described as motor behavior.
