In motor development, the changes are associated with given lifetime periods and in the motor learning the changes are associated with some specific practice experience. Still, for both phenomena, it is not enough to perform a new action, but such action must to meet it aim reliably, i.e., the performer must be frequently successful, even if there are demands challenging him/ her.
