Abstract for
"Multiple Time-Scale Landscape Models of Motor Learning"

We present a multiple time-scales landscape model to describe motor-learning of human coordination tasks. We illustrate how the "universal power-law of practice" can be more effectiveely described and interpreted theoretically by assigning different time-scales to different aspects of the movement. Re-analysis of classical data from the early part of the 20th century using our new method reveal new structures that might have an impact on sports-coaching and more general learning strategies.
