According to "Motor Skills Are Strengthened through Reconsolidation" (available through SciHub) adding variability to practice sessions increases learning speed. In the paper, patients were directed to move a cursor on a screen to certain targets via pinch force. Patients who's pinch force mapping was modified during each trial ended up learning faster and ...

Engineering psychologists specialize in the relationship between humans and the products we use every day. Tufts University, MA, offers a major in engineering psychology called "Bachelor of Science in Human Factors ...
