Action observation and motor imagery promote motor learning. But which one should we use during skill acquisition and refinement, or should we use both?Continue reading “AO, MI, AOMI for motor learning”
Does mental practice work? It does.Continue reading “Is imagery worth it?”
Together with Christopher Meier from the Sports and Education group here in Bielefeld, I’ve been working on the use of analogies in children. In his PhD project, he focused on the question how analogies influence motor learning, especially in skilled athletes (see here).
Looking at both their performance and their representation structures in motor memory, we recently published a study on the impact of analogy and explicit verbal instructions in junior tennis players (see here).Continue reading “Children, analogies, and motor learning”
Today is the last (official) day of the Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Interaction Technology (EXC 277) funded by the German Research Foundation.Continue reading “CITEC”
I am heading more towards teaching and research in educational settings, towards kids and their needs.Continue reading “From secondary to primary school and early childhood”
How can we use imagery for physical education such that it adds to motor learning, and such that it can be implemented straightforward in a physical education class?Continue reading “Imagery in physical education”
Is Virtual Reality the panacea it first seems? Continue reading “VR and Motor Learning”
