1

motor behavior

motor response to internal and external stimuli

2

motor control

how the CNS integrates sensory information with previous experiences

3

motor learning

integration of motor control processes through practice, leading to a relatively permanent change to produce skilled movement

4

motor development

the change in motor skill behavior over time throughout the lifespan

5

sensorimotor integration

cooperation of the nervous and muscular systems in gathering and interpreting information and executing movement

6

muscle synergies

groups of muscles that are recruited by the CNS to provide movement

7

proprioception

cumulative sensory input from all mechanoreceptors that sense position and limb movements

8

feedback

use of sensory information and sensorimotor integration to help the HMS in motor learning

9

internal feedback

sensory information is used by the body to reactively monitor movement and the environment

10

external feedback

information provided by some external source (e.g. fitness professional, recording, mirror, etc.) to supplement the internal environment
