Faculty of Kinesiology
University of New Brunswick Dynamical Systems in Human Movement Analysis Control: the magnitude of a variable related to the limb or limb segment movement (e.g. force, acceleration all kinetics, kinematics) Skill: The ability to modify control and coordination to achieve a desired outcome Coordination: The relationship between movements of limb segments

Motor Control, 9(3), 217 simultaneous and oscillatory movements dependent variable is relative phase: difference in fingers phase values from a common start frequency increased with metronome over trial at a critical frequency, antiphase pattern switched to inphase in phase pattern maintained with increasing frequency motor skill acquisition theories currently has 2 main: information processing and constraints driven

constraints driven: self-organizaing systems, DST
at present, no direct relation with research in motor control and physical education
