Basic and Applied Motor Learning and Performance

subject golf putting in labThis work investigates the bases of motor learning and performance as well as how to capitalize on these bases. For example, our work suggests enhanced augmented feedback processing may correspond with improved motor learning, and having individuals choose when to receive feedback increases its processing.





Psychological Determinants of Physical Activity, Exercise, and Sedentary Behavior

colored brain through headThis work examines the psychological mechanisms leading individuals to engage (or, is more often the case, not engage) in physical activity, exercise, and sedentary behavior. Currently, we are examining the neural correlates of exercise attitudes, and whether the extent to which individuals pursue rewards and the satisfaction they obtain when consuming the rewards is related to the energetic cost of the rewards.
