Classes

Course Course Title Credits Term Instructor
KINESLGY 423 Sensorimotor Development 3 Fall, Winter, As Arranged Robinson
Course Name RO: Sensorimot Dev
Course Level: Graduate
Description
The purpose of this course is to study major concepts and principles fundamental to the development of sensorimotor behavior from fetal to late childhood. The overall question for this class is: How and why patterns of motor behavior change? We will study subsystems that affect behavior in real time and over developmental time. This course is intended for pediatric practitioners as well as people interested in basic science issues. We will study the origins of new motor patterns as well as the improvement of motor performance with special emphasis in the development of the nervous system from fetal to early childhood life. We will discuss observable and 'classic' changes in motor skill that occur over time, and we will examine and discuss methods to assess motor performance.
Prerequisites: Graduate status; MOVESCI 320 or permission of instructor.
