Project description

Anticipation is a prerequisite for successful performance in virtually all motor activities, whether it is crossing a street, writing, or picking up a cup. In this research project we will investigate the development of visual-cognitive functions underpinning anticipatory skill and how these functions may be trained to improve anticipatory skill.
