  • Part 1: Motor Learning and Motor Control: Definition and domain determination 
  • Part 2: Models of Motor Control and Motor Learning 
  • Part 3: The role of sensory information in the control of movement and the proces of motor learning
  • Part 4: Movement Coordination and Control 

Neurophysiology deals with

  • Neurophysiology of the cell 
  • Neurophysiology of Learning and Memory
