Paths of Discovery in Human Motor Control. A Short Historical Perspective / M. Wiesendanger
Summary This publication provides the reader with a better understanding of some basic principles of motor behavior and gives an update on modern approaches of human motor control. It contains abundant information on the current trends and illustrates the progress from laboratory findings to the investigation of more natural movements as well as of the cognitive aspects of motor behavior. As an additional benefit for the reader, the collected data is put in a historical perspective. Basic and clinical neuroscientists, rehabilitation specialists, physiotherapists and in particular students in system neuroscience, robotics and bioengineering will find this book a noteworthy contribution to the field
