Inhaltsangabe: This book is a comprehensive, elementary introduction to the field of motor control, stressing psychological, physiological, and computational approaches. "Human Motor Control" cuts across all disciplines which are defined with respect to movement: physical education, dance, physical therapy, robotics, and so on. The book is unique because it is organized around major activity areas. It is a comprehensive presentation of the major problems and topics in human motor control; incorporates applications of work that lie outside the traditional sports or physical education teaching areas; emphasizes computational aspects of movement, and gives a much more detailed treatment of motor neurophysiology than other textbooks; includes critical appraisals of current research on such topics as internal representations of forthcoming movements, and important new theories such as Synergetics; compiles the latest research - each chapter has been reviewed by at least one expert; presents extensive discussions of activities such as tennis, long-jumping, diving, and swimming; and features a second part which is organized in a modular fashion to allow you to read only chapters of interest.
