Masters, R. S. W and Polman, Remco (1996) What are “normal movements” in any population? Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 19 (1). pp. 81-82. ISSN 0140-525X (print) 1469-1825 (online)


It is the contention of Latash & Anson (L&A) that in atypical populations, such as those with cognitive, central neurological, or peripheral disorders, the central nervous system (CNS) is capable of producing more effective, though often less “normal,” movement patterns ifleft to its own devices. It is the aim of this commentary to extend their argument to other populations by pointing out the many parallels with development of movement patterns in sport.
