specific areas on the surface of the cortex by several surface electrodes placed on a person's scalp. Brain activity is recorded as waves, which are identified on the basis of the speed of the rhythmic activity. EMG (electromyography) - a measurement technique that records the electrical activity of a muscle or group of muscles; it indicates the muscle activity fMRI (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) - brain scanning technique that assesses changes in blood flow by detecting blood oxygenation characteristics while a person is performing a skill or activity in the MRI scanner. It provides clear images of active brain areas at a specified time and can provide quantitative information about the levels of brain region activity. Kinematics – the description of motion without regard to force or mass; it includes displacement, velocity, and acceleration kinetics – the study of the role of force as a cause of motion movement time (MT) - the interval of time between the initiation of a movement and the completion of the movement performance outcome measures – a category or motor skill performance measures that indicates the outcome or result of performing a motor skill EX: How far a person walked, how fast a person ran a certain distance, or how many degrees a person flexed a knee.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
