NATS Chat - Motor Learning Part II: Focus? Locus? Hocus-pocus?

November 10, 2019

Join our live, real-time discussions for voice teachers and singers.
Presented by Inside View Press
Hosted by Dr. Kari Ragan

Description: The question of where performers in the physical realm should place their attention during both learning and performing - externally, on the desired outcome, or internally, on the mechanics of movement - is hotly debated in current motor learning theory. Proponents of external focus claim that its superior results mean the case is closed. Other recent researchers in motor learning theory say the jury is still out, and question whether external focus is appropriate, or even possible, in all situations. Guests Lynn Helding and Lynn Maxfield will discuss both sides of the debate.

Guests: Lynn Helding and Lynn Maxfield

Time: 6 pm PT, 7 pm MT, 8 pm CT, 9 pm ET
