Ives’ Motor Behavior takes a functional approach to motor control and learning that is in keeping with the modern use and understanding of these topics. This title is truly unique in that it goes beyond just explaining motor control and motor learning to help students understand how these disciplines interact with each other to affect behavior. Throughout the text, the interaction between the mind and the body and how these come together in the context of practice, training, and performance is presented. The book provides not only clear, research-based examples, but also provides step by step guidelines for implementation of mind and body training.
