Motor learning is an assortment of adaptive processes in motor control by which a new movement skill is being acquired skill acquisition or motor performance is being restored even under novel kinematical or dynamical environment motor adaptation.

Motor Control Theories and Their Applications
A motor program is an abstract representation of movement that centrally organizes and controls the many degrees of freedom involved in performing an action. Evidence for the concept of motor programs include the following:  p. This is not meant to underestimate the importance of feedback information, merely that another level of control beyond feedback is used: . The response-chaining, or reflex-chaining hypothesis, proposed by William James ,  was one of the earliest descriptions of movement control. This open-loop hypothesis postulated that movements required attention only for initiation of the first action. Although feedback is involved in this process, ongoing movements cannot be modified if there are unexpected changes in the environment; feedback is not compared to some internally generated reference value for error checking.
At present there is no consensus on which theory or model defines the regulations to explain motor control. Theories of motor learning should be the basis for.

Please consult the latest official manual style if you have any questions regarding the format accuracy. Concept: Theories about how we control coordinated movement differ in terms of the roles of central and environmental features of a control system. Define the term coordination as it relates to the performance of motor skills.
We describe several influential hypotheses in the field of motor control including the equilibrium-point referent configuration hypothesis, the uncontrolled manifold hypothesis, and the idea of synergies based on the principle of motor abundance. The equilibrium-point hypothesis is based on the idea of control with thresholds for activation of neuronal pools; it provides a framework for analysis of both voluntary and involuntary movements. In particular, control of a single muscle can be adequately described with changes in the threshold of motor unit recruitment during slow muscle stretch threshold of the tonic stretch reflex. Unlike the ideas of internal models, the equilibrium-point hypothesis does not assume neural computations of mechanical variables. The uncontrolled manifold hypothesis is based on the dynamic system approach to movements; it offers a toolbox to analyze synergic changes within redundant sets of elements related to stabilization of potentially important performance variables.
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This single volume brings together both theoretical developments in the field of motor control and their translation into such fields as movement disorders, motor rehabilitation, robotics, prosthetics, brain-machine interface, and skill learning. Motor control has established itself as an area of scientific research characterized by a multi-disciplinary approach. Its goal is to promote cooperation and mutual understanding among researchers addressing different aspects of the complex phenomenon of motor coordination.
