Motor learning in a mixed reality environment
Paper i proceeding, 2012

The traditional method for acquiring a motor skill is to focus on ones limbs while performing the movement. A theory of motor learning validated during the last ten years is contradicting the traditional method. The new theory states that it is more beneficial to focus on external markers outside the human body and predicts acquiring the motor skill better and faster. Using a mixed reality environment, we tested if the new motor learning approach is also valid using a virtual trainer and virtual markers.
