We move in a noisy world. Hear biomechanics professor Alaa Ahmed describe motor learning through modeling and commands. In this light, elite athletes seem to be using much more brain power than originally thought.
Thought and Action are much more connected than we typically think: Simply imagining or watching actions can influence how you perform similar actions. Hear the studies and descriptions of this phenomenon in this episode.
