Each student progresses through their degrees based on his/her individual plan of study as approved by their advisor and committee. Major Topics I. Each mentor is affiliated with a primary lab research group, but many student projects include purposes that overlap several of the lab themes, and often faculty in each lab collaborate on master’s theses committees. It summarizes the current controversies and challenges in motor control and emphasizes the necessity for an adequate set of notions that would make motor control (and kinesiology) a science.

Motor learning is a subdiscipline of motor behavior that examines how people acquire motor skills. Title. Human mechanics. Most importantly, this work has led to a mechanistic understanding of non-paretic arm (ipsilesional) motor deficits in stroke patients. The M.S. To enhance the core depth in fundamental aspects of motor control, applications for membership will also be considered from researchers employed in kinesiology or similar academic units at collaborating institutions from across Ontario who have a demonstrated interest in basic science issues related to motor control. Plan of Study . describe the fundamentals of biomechanics and motor control/motor learning; 10. explore various kinesiology and sports related career paths; 11. identify the areas of study in exercise epidemiology; and 12. promote health and fitness in the community by participating in or leading health and/or fitness related community activities.
