Research Title: Implications of Multisensory Motor Learning on Pupils' Fundamental Motor Skills
My research involves assessing the effect of different sensory stimuli (vision, touch and sound) on a person's motor coordination and the coordination between two people. The main aim is to assess the weight of each sensory modality on motor coordination thus providing a clearer picture of how people are affected by different stimuli when attempting to coordinate a motor skill or activity. The research will also involve using different combinations of these stimuli again assessing the effect that this will have on motor coordination. The findings from this research could have many applications in everyday life, learning and among people with specific disabilities.
