Krombholz, Dirk; Leinen, Peter; Muehlbauer, Thomas; Panzer, Stefan – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Poor single-leg balance performance is associated with an increased risk of sustaining lower limb injuries in team sports. However, it is unclear whether this relationship is modified by the level of training experience (years of training experience). The objective of the present study was to evaluate whether soccer players' single-leg balance…

McKay, Brad; Corson, Abbey; Vinh, Mary-Anne; Jeyarajan, Gianna; Tandon, Chitrini; Brooks, Hugh; Hubley, Julie; Carter, Michael J. – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
A priori power analyses can ensure studies are unlikely to miss interesting effects. Recent metascience has suggested that kinesiology research may be underpowered and selectively reported. Here, we examined whether power analyses are being used to ensure informative studies in motor behavior. We reviewed every article published in three motor…

McKay, Brad; Bacelar, Mariane F. B.; Carter, Michael J. – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Recent metascience suggests that motor behavior research may be underpowered, on average. Researchers can perform a priori power analyses to ensure adequately powered studies. However, there are common pitfalls that can result in underestimating the required sample size for a given design and effect size of interest. Critical evaluation of power…

Plumb, Mandy S.; Charity, Megan; Milla, Kimberly; Bodt, Barry; Getchell, Nancy – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Background: Previous research suggests that children with or at risk of probable developmental coordination disorder (pDCD) activate different areas of the brain when performing certain motor skills compared with typically developing (TD) children. This study used functional near-infrared spectroscopy to compare prefrontal cortex (PFC) activity in…

Brown, James O.; Chatburn, Alex; Wright, David L.; Immink, Maarten A. – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Posttraining meditation has been shown to promote wakeful memory stabilization of explicit motor sequence information in learners who are experienced meditators. We investigated the effect of single-session mindfulness meditation on wakeful and sleep-dependent forms of implicit motor memory consolidation in meditation naïve adults. Immediately…

Marinšek, Miha; Bedenik, Klemen; Kovac, Marjeta – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Motor competence as an indicator of gross motor development is characterized by changes in movement patterns and outcomes. The Test of Gross Motor Development-3 consists of six locomotor and seven ball tasks used to assess the quality of fundamental motor skills in children. The purpose of this study is twofold--to produce a Slovenian translation…

Muro, Ayane; Takatoku, Nozomi; Ohtaka, Chiaki; Fujiwara, Motoko; Nakata, Hiroki – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
We investigated performance levels on conducting continuous two-footed jumping of preschool children (4 years old) to high school students (16 years old) to clarify the developmental progression and sex differences in motor coordination and agility. In total, 450 children (boys: 227; girls: 223) participated in this study. We set 10 obstacles to…

das Virgens Chagas, Daniel; Hesketh, Kylie; Downing, Katherine; Mohebbi, Mohammadreza; Barnett, Lisa M. – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Background: Understanding how or whether sedentary behavior affects motor competence in young children is important considering that children spend a lot of time sedentary. The aim of this study was to examine whether sedentary behavior predicts motor competence in young children. Methods: A longitudinal study with a total of 372 children aged 3.5…

Schott, Nadja – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Research has shown that nonright-handedness in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) is associated with poorer motor and cognitive performance. This study investigated the influence of degree and direction of handedness on performance using the Home Handedness Questionnaire, the Hitthe-Dot test, the Movement Assessment Battery…

Shahzada, Shamoon S.; Mak, Toby C. T.; Wong, Thomson W. L. – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
The theory of reinvestment in experimental psychology suggested that automated performance could be degraded if attention was internally diverted to the process of skill execution. This study examined the role of attentional focus instructions on real-time conscious motor processing (i.e., reinvestment) during tandem walking. Thirty-six young…

Moradi, Jalil; Maleki, Mohammad; Moradi, Hadi – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
This study aimed to investigate the effect of part and whole practice on learning basketball lay-up shot skill in young and adolescent male students. Participants were randomly divided into four groups of part and whole practice, namely, part practice-young, whole practice-young, part practice-adolescent, and whole practice-adolescent. After a…

Salami, Sedigheh; Ribeiro Bandeira, Paulo Felipe; Martins, Clarice; Hardy, Louise L.; Shams, Amir; Dehkordi, Parvaneh Shamsipour – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Purpose: To examine the factor structure and measurement invariance of the Körperkoordinations Test Für Kinder (KTK) and covariates of motor competence in a sample of Iranian children aged 5-14 years. Methods: Participants were children aged 5-14 years (N = 432, 61% boys). Age, sex, and body mass index were collected. Confirmatory factor analysis…

Burns, Ryan Donald; Fu, You; Bai, Yang; Byun, Wonwoo – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
The purpose of this study was to determine the associations of device-based assessments of physical activity (PA) and health-related fitness (HRF) with gross motor skills (GMS) in preschool-aged children. Participants were 3- to 5-year-old children (N = 316; 49.6% female) who participated in the 2012 National Youth Fitness Survey. GMS was assessed…

Schoenmaker, Jorine; Houdijk, Han; Steenbergen, Bert; Reinders-Messelink, Heleen A.; Schoemaker, Marina M. – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Effectiveness of motor interventions depends not only on learning content but also on the used teaching strategies. However, little is known regarding the application of teaching strategies in clinical practice. This study aimed to develop and assess psychometric properties of a new Dutch observational instrument to document teaching strategies:…

Nahidi, Narges; Saemi, Esmaeel; Doustan, Mohammadreza; Aronson, Joshua; Laurin, Raphaël – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
The present study explored the effects of gender stereotype threat and conceptions of ability on motor learning and working memory in novice female learners. Sixty participants (M[subscript age] = 21.92 years, SD[subscript age] = 1.74) were randomly assigned into a gender stereotype threat and a control group (neutral; without stereotype threat).…
