In this episode Harjiv Singh and I discuss the role of language in optimising the motor learning process. Harjiv is currently a PhD student at the University of Las Vegas under the supervision of Dr Gabriele Wulf and is interested in motor learning for a range of populations. He shares lots of his thoughts via twitter and on rebelmovement.org.
