What is Motor Learning?

Motor learning can be found in any high school auto shop class. It is also the process of learning how to use your body. Improving and learning motor skills are a part of the natural development of children. When they are born they can’t do much for themselves but they learn quickly. Motor skills progress from the trunk outward. First a child learns to move his arm, then his hand, then finally he can master the pincer grasp with just two appendages. Motor learning also comes in play in relearning after trauma such as a stroke.
