Abstract:

The paper presents a tutorial review of the current status of work on perceptual motor skills from the joint perspectives of information processing and feedback control. The organizing theme for the discussion is a multi-level conception of motor control involving 1 an elementary error-correction system 2 higher level feedback and control functions describing how man responds to the predictable characteristics of input signals and 3 a schema based memory and response execution system for describing voluntary movement capacities. Elementary concepts of feedback control are introduced together with discussion of the role of feedback on performance, in tracking, and in voluntary movement.
