About this title


This book explores the fascinating subject of motor development from birth through adulthood. The most comprehensive and up-to-date, scientifically based book available, Lifelong Motor Development, Third Edition, reviews the latest theory and research to help readers understand physical growth and motor development across the lifespan. The nature/nurture theme pervades, stimulating critical thinking and giving an exciting perspective from which to consider the biological and environmental influences on the various aspects of motor development. Highlights the latest findings in early brain development research and the importance of that research on motor behavior and application of knowledge. New research includes studies on perception, dynamical systems, infant (motor) memory, psychomotor slowing, and physical fitness. For anyone interested in physical education, kinesiology, exercise science, and human performance.
