Basics for sensorimotor information processing: some implications for learning

Franck Vidal, Cédric Meckler, Thierry Hasbroucq
2015 Frontiers in Psychology  
In sensorimotor activities, learning requires efficient information processing, whether in car driving, sport activities or human-machine interactions.  ...  Extrinsic and intrinsic factors are important to take into account for learning because (1) they strongly affect performance, either in terms of speed or accuracy, which facilitates or impairs learning  ...  In certain sports, such as rugby football, certain game sequences are completely repeated and learnt before the matches. This training will not make the players, say, run faster.  ...
