Special Issue on The Role of Practice in Motor Skill Acquisition


In this special issue, papers provide a comprehensive and thoughtful analysis of motor learning theories and processes (cognitive, perceptual, and motor mechanisms) emphasizing how different levels of analysis are changed during practice, leading to the acquisition of new motor skills.
