Learning outcomes

Knowing the fundamental techniques applied for improving the motor performances through action imagination: the so-called “mental training”. Knowing the fundamental ways to apply mental training considering different populations: healthy people or people with neuro-motor pathologies (stroke, Parkinson, amputees). Knowing the fundamental procedure utilized for testing the ability to anticipate and to preprogram actions. The student will acquire knowledge about the main techniques used to analyze and improve the performance and its determinants through laboratory and field instruments. Based to this the student will plan and implement training models.

Syllabus

Action imagination and ideomotor training: effects of motor performance. Explanations and applications particularly to individuals presenting neuro-motor pathologies, amputees and individuals having prolonged periods of immobilization. Origins and neurophysiological mechanism of internal actions simulations. Action preparation and Anticipatory Postural Adjustments. Related applications and specific apparatus used. Training related to the lessons performed in the biomechanics lab with data collection and analysis for two different experiments.

Assessment methods and criteria
