Dynamics of acquiring adaptive skills in a complex multi-articular task: Constraints on metastable actions
Orth, Dominic R. (2016) Dynamics of acquiring adaptive skills in a complex multi-articular task: Constraints on metastable actions. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis presents data supporting a re-definition of the concept of learning and transfer of skills in physical activity and sport performance contexts. The key findings indicate that during practice, environmental designs that promote exploratory behaviour facilitate improved performance in modified conditions.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
