Module one Motor Behavior Motor control Motor behavior Motor develop Time is a catalyst for change Fundamental Concepts… Movement is intrinsic to humans Lifespan perspective MDEV is age related > not age determined Persistence is activity is mediated by motor achievement Movement = life Developing embryo: always moves Micro…brain cell migration Macro….sucking, kicking; ensures the survival and growth and prevents adhesion to wall Lifespan perspective Begin active lifestyle ASAP: target young Lifespan means “history” is important Start young keep it going throughout life Time Development is age related but age does not determine what you can or cannot do. Persistence in activity…. What does this mean?

For something to mediated by, principle association between one’s ability to adhere activity (sports or exercise) to ones motor achievements Seems pointless to keep at a sport if they are not improving & no improvement will occur if they do not have the time to practice Those without skills wont be given time to learn them and those with skills will continue on to play Effect of motor development to adherence in sport No achievement = no dedication and vise versa JARGO 4 domains of Human Dev: Motor, cognitive, affective, physical = are interrelated Developmental prosses involve both Growth – physical increase in size; structural change Maturation – maturing; functional change Developmental periods Neonate- birth to 22 days Infancy birth to 1 year Childhood 1-18/20 years Adolescences Girls 8/10 to 18 years Boys 10/12 to 20 years Adult hood Young adulthood 18-40 years Middle adulthood 40-60 years Older adulthood 60+ years 4 historical periods

Precursor: Darwinian roots Biological sketch of infant….platform for understanding brain; through movement reflected what was happening in the brain Maturation: biological maturation determined development Maturation is seen as major factor Normative/descriptive : standardized testing What is normal and what is not….almost killed the growth as a field Process-oriented: emphasis on “How” Present. .understand mechanisms process underling evaluation and decline of movement Theory of movement Info processing maturation model The brain is front and center….movements arise solely from the brain CNS matures and dictates development Releases system from reflexive state to voluntary behaviors Flow of info and corresponding feedback (CNS program and plan) Dynamical Systems Model Rejects Maturation - other factors to consider other than biological factors alone Brain might be power house but other factors effect movement Motor skills develop as a function of 3 Constraints. . Individual, environmental, and TASK
