Flashcards in Exam 2- Motor control Deck (84):

3 stages for motor

~motor control
~motor learning
~motor development


Motor Control

~The ability to regulate the mechanisms of movement
~The ability to maintain and change posture and movement
~Is the results of neurological and mechanical processes


Motor Learning

~The process that bring about the change in motor performance as a result of practice and experience
~Control will become learning


Motor Development

~Learning will become development
~Athletes have developed things
~Walking, rolling over, sit to stand, etc have been learned to develop over our years
**If a person has a stroke, that person has to relearn it (start over)
**Have to relearn the motor side again even though they know what it is like to do these tasks


How long does motor control last?



How long will it take to get motor learning?

hours, days, weeks depending on what you are learning


How long to get to motor development?

Takes months, years, decades


What are the 3 major categories of movement?

*Bringman liked this


What are the 3 subcategories of Individual?



Details on action of individual

~The specific task that you do; how the individual actually moves
~How do we do this task; what muscle do we use


Detail on perception of individual

~The sensory input the person is receiving while doing the movement
~How much input do we use- how much force for writing; etc


Details on cognition of individual

~Why are they doing it; reasoning behind the task
~How much attention are they giving to the task
~Emotions/ motivations- why are they doing the task (walking their child down the aisle)


What are the 3 subcategories of Task?



Details on mobility of task

is the person mobile enough to do this task (ROM)


Details on stability of task

are you stable enough to do the task


Details on manipulation of task

~As other demands are applied to the task, is the person able to adjust to the task
~The ability to react and maintain


What are the 4 subcategories of Environment?



details on regulatory of environment

~Your task must conform to the env
~Walking a flat surface- staying on that surface (or staying in bounds at a basketball game)


details on non-regulatory of environment

~When there are outside forces that can cause a distraction
~All the distractions (fans distracting during a free throw; a person talking to you while walk)


details on predictable of environment

the env is always constant


details on non-predictable of environment

the env is not always constant


what are the 3 theories that were talked about?

~top down


Details on reflex theory

~Complex movements can be explained by series ind reflex that causes movements
~Can be explained by stimuli
~Doesn’t give you top down control- just reflexive movements
~Doesn’t explain new movements
~If every time we touch something hot, we would jump back-reflex (But we can override a reflex)


Details on top down theory

~Another name is Hierarchical
~We have primitive reflexes and then we incorporate them
~We give all actions to the brain
~This would mean everything would have to go to the brain
~However, we still have reflexes that just enter the spine and cause an immediate response (When you step on a pin, just in the spine)


Details on Systems theory

~We can put all our systems work together to cause the movement
~Don’t worry about these theories too much


Which theory was feedback introduced in?

system theory


Details about feedback

~Allows the ind to know if previous attempts have been successful and to adapt accordingly
~Can have internal feedback to know how you are doing while you are doing the task


What are the two loops in feedback?



Open feedback loops

~Not a real loop
~Have to wait until the movement is completed
~Playing golf- don’t know how you did until after the swing was over; throwing a ball


Closed feedback loops

~It’s a constant feedback (circular loop)
~As you are playing a game, you are constantly getting feedback on how you are doing and able to adjust how you are playing
~In a controlled manner, we get the feedback in, get more information in, adjust, etc


4 big concepts of motor learning

~Learning is the process of acquiring the capability of skilled action
~Results from experience or practice or both
~Motor learning cannot be measured directly- it can only be measured indirectly; can infer from behavior of their actions
~Learning produces relatively permanent changes in a behavior, thus short term adaptations in behavior are not thought of as learning but are thought of as performance (Until it is a constant behavior, it is not learned)


Phase of motor learning (3)



Details on cognitive phase of motor learning

~The task is new or the way they have to do the task is new
~The ind’s task may be new (stroke- new body, peds- young and have never done it)
~Learning what to do- imagery is important! (Have the patient visualize the task)
~Patient may not get past this phase; may always need help with this


Details on associative phase of motor learning

~How we learn to do the task
~Error detection; after each attempt of the task, we should be fine tuning the task
~This is where frustration can be a stumbling block
~Have to do something 300 times to remember it


Details on autonomous phase of motor learning

~Task has been mastered and can be carried out with little attention
~Driving- we don’t even think about it
~Change comes very slowly; it’s hard to change if you are doing a task incorrectly


Details on poor form

~Form fatigue
~You want to stop them before the pts are doing the wrong way
~You will be reinforcing the incorrect way
~You do not want them to learn the wrong way in associative phase, which will then become autonomous phase


Intrinsic feedback

how did the movement feel


Extrinsic feedback

~what were the results of the movement
~did it produce a positive results; what did the coach/ PT say about the results


What is KR?

knowledge of results


details on KR

~A type of extrinsic feedback
~What was the outcome of the action
~Optimal delay before you give feedback- 3 sec


positive and negative of giving constant feedback

~positive- learn faster because you are constantly getting feedback
~negative- have a harder time retaining the results


positive and negative of varied feedback

~positive- you will remember more
~negative- will take longer to learn


details on summed feedback

~go through everything at the end
~giving a lot of feedback each time at the end


details on faded feedback

~ give more in the beginning and then start to give less by the end
~let the pt become more independent


What does KP stand for?

knowledge of performance


details on KP

~Will tell what part you are doing well in, as well as the negative feedback
~Will end on a good note, but give positive feedback so that they know that they are at least doing something right


what is feed forward?

~To tell them about what they were doing wrong beforehand, so you remind them how to do it correct
~When they keep making mistakes and give feedback after; not correcting- try feed forward


Massed practice

~Practice time is greater than rest time
~Good: More reps, learn it quicker
~Bad: high risk of injury


Distributed practice

~Rest is greater than or equal to practice time
~Good: won’t get as tired, won’t get form fatigue, less chance of injury
~Bad: will learn slower


variable practice

~Will be changing some aspect of the task
~Are able to apply it to many different tasks (more variable)


constant practice

~Will do the same task, everything is the same
~Good for one specific activity, but they don’t apply it to other tasks
~Often good for the beginning of learning a new task
~Takes less time to learn, but is not very transferrable


blocked practice

~Will in blocks of the same tasks
~Will do 10 reps of this, 15 reps of that, walk for 5 min, etc
~Will be able to perform better


random practice

~Will do random/integrated tasks
~The tasks are more fluid (like life is)
~Will be able to learn better


what type of practice is best before the pt is ready to return home?

*should be like a normal day


Whole practice

~the whole task


Part practice

~part of the task
~weight shift, step, hip flexion, DF, etc


reverse order practice

~If the last step of supine to side lying are ok, but the first are not; can break it down and do just the last few step (plus one more)
~keep working on it until you have all parts



~Does my pt remember what we worked on last time and are able to complete the task next visit
~The pt is able to complete when working with pt by the end of a pt session, but does not remember the previous day; every day is like a new day


contextual interference

The ability to learn something from one task and take the task out of context to be able learn another similar task


mental practice

~Visualize the task; have the pt just sit there and think about it
~cardiovascular training through imagery



~Guiding/ Talking though the pts through the tasks


ways to help guild/ train the pts



Non associative learning

~A repetitive single stimulus
~Can habituate (get used to and ignore; ignore child saying mommy, mommy, mommy) or sensitize (not used to it at the time and will react; wake up to a sound in the middle of the night)


associative learning

~Associative one aspect of a movement with an attribute of another to become an integrated whole
~If this, than that


procedural learning

~Once a task is learned, it will become second nature; it is a procedural- it is learned
~You don’t have to think about it any more


declarative learning

~It is more intentional, we have to think more about it when we are doing the task
~When we are learning it, we have to think more about
