Editorial Reviews

Papers from the September 1994 symposium consider the interplay between perception and action and between reflexive and volitional motor acts, as well as between sensory driven or self-initiated motor acts and reafferent inputs. Topics include coordination and motor plan; the role of visual, vestibular, and somatosensory afferents for posture and movement control; orientation and perception; reafferents, modeling; clinical insights; and aviation and space flight.
