Abstract:

This chapter is concerned with transfer with of learning in situations involving the kinds of response that are defined primarily as motor behaviors. The authors focus on situations where movement control is learned and transferred to some of other situation. Complimentary treatments of the motor and cognitive bases of transfer are offered. Definitional and experimental design questions surrounding transfer are discussed as are a number of important principles of motor behavior and motor control which have emerged in the past few decades. Principles of movement control are also discussed in terms of understanding some of the phenomena seen in transfer of learning situations.
