Recent years have seen many new developments in computational intelligence (CI) techniques and, consequently, this has led to an exponential increase in the number of applications in a variety of areas, including: engineering, finance, social and biomedical. In particular, CI techniques are increasingly being used in biomedical and human movement areas because of the complexity of the biological systems as well as the limitations of the existing quantitative techniques in modelling.
Computational Intelligence for Movement Sciences: Neural Networks and Other Emerging Techniques contains information regarding state-of-the-art research outcomes and cutting-edge technology from leading scientists and researchers working on various aspects of the human movement. Readers of this book will gain an insight into this field as well as access to pertinent information, which they will be able to use for continuing research in this area.
