  2. 2. Effect of timing training in golf and soccer players skill, movement organization, and brain activity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marius Sommer; Louise Rönnqvist; Charlotte Häger; Nicola Hodges; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Motor timing; rhythmicity; timing training; golf shot; golf swing; kinematics; precision; variability; coordination; movement dynamics; soccer; fMRI; mirror neurons; action observation; cerebellum; perception - action.; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Background Although trainers and athletes consider ‘good timing skills’ to be critical for optimal sport performance, little is known in regard to how sport-specific skills may benefit from timing training. Thus, assuming that all motor performances are mediated by an internal timing mechanism, enhanced motor timing is expected to have positive effects on both planning and execution of movement performance, and consequently on complex sports actions as golf or soccer.

  5. 5. Joint action without and beyond planning

    University dissertation from University of Edinburgh

    Author : Olle Blomberg; [2013-07-01]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES;

With Bratman’s account as a foil, I address two lacunas that are relatively unexplored in the philosophical literature. READ MORE
