Motor learning: a permanent change in the performance levels of a motor task from practice. Motor skill: a task that has a goal to achieve and that requires voluntary body or limb movement to be properly performed. The acquisition of a motor skill is a process in which the learner develops a set of motor responses into an integrated and organized movement pattern. Skill, unlike talent, is a consequence of training and practice. Production of a fast output of high quality. An anticipation of variations in the stimulus situation before they arrive. Reduction in time to make a choice of responses once the signal is identified. Types of variables that affect the learning of a motor skill. Input variables: involve the capacity of a performer to understand directions, to judge velocities of objects in a complex space field, as well as his ability to perceive his own movements. State of the performer: maturation, tension and arousal, motives, etc.
