Description

Motor Control: Issues and Trends discusses concepts, ideas and experimental data on issues and trends in motor control. The book contains the works of scientists who are doing research in the field of motor control. The contributed articles focus on such topics as central and peripheral mechanisms in motor control; theoretical approaches to the learning of motor skills; how the concept of attention can be used and applied to problems in the perception and production of movement; and motor task complexity. Psychologists, behaviorists, and neurophysiologists will find the book invaluable.
