Why is movement variability beneficial for skill acquisition and execution? What distinguishes “good” from “bad” variability in movement?  How do different coaching/instructional methods (e.g. ordering practice conditions, cueing, differential learning, and manipulating constraints) compare in terms of their ability to encourage functional variability? When should we be trying to maximize variability?



Creative Motor Actions as Emerging from Movement Variability

The Role of Variability in Motor Learning

Motor variability is not noise, but grist for the learning mill

Individual Movement Variability Magnitudes Are Explained by Cortical Neural Variability

Temporal structure of motor variability is dynamically regulated and predicts motor learning ability.
