During the past two decades, there has been a dramatic increase
in interest in the study of motor control and learning. In this
volume authors from a variety of backgrounds and theoretical
perspectives review their research with particular emphasis on
the methods and paradigms employed, and the future direction of
their work. The book is divided into four main sections. The
first section contains chapters examining general issues and
trends in the movement behaviour field. The remaining three
sections contain chapters from scientists working in three
broadly defined areas of interest: coordination and control;
visuo-motor processes; and movement disorders. Each section
provides an overview of the different approaches and different
levels of analysis being used to examine specific topics within
the motor domain.
