Overview

Progress in Motor Control, Volume Two, features 12 chapters by internationally known researchers in the field of motor control.

Comprehensive and up to date, the reference reflects the spirit of the great Nikolai Bernstein, one of the founders of the area now defined as motor control and a significant contributor to the structure-function controversy.

Progress in Motor Control, Volume Two, preserves many of the features that made the first volume a state-of-the-art reference and presents these new features:

-A reader-friendly design

-More than 170 figures to illustrate the scientific ideas expressed

-Many up-to-date references to help readers find the most current research in the field
Less theoretical than the first volume, this book provides readers with valuable information on these subjects:

-The direct relations of the motor function to neurophysiological and/or biomechanical structures

-The role of the motor cortex and other brain structures in motor control and motor learning

-The multidimensional and temporal regulation of limb mechanics by spinal circuits
In this unique forum, prominent motor control scientists contribute varying viewpoints on different aspects of structure-function relations. These prominent scholars include scientists from the former Soviet Union who either knew Bernstein personally or worked closely with his students, biomechanists and neurophysiologists who focus on the role of particular body structures in the movement of production, and clinicians who analyze changes in movements with children and adults with neurological disorders.

The book also gives an overview of the disagreement between Ivan Pavlov and Nikolai Bernstein, which is one of the most fascinating and controversial disagreements in the history of contemporary neurophysiology.

Whether you're a researcher, or graduate or postdoctoral student, Progress in Motor Control, Volume Two, thoroughly summarizes the latest motor control issues, research, and theories, and it identifies problems in need of investigation.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eadric Bressel, EdD (Utah State University College of Education & Human Services)
Description: This second volume in a series entitled Progress in Motor Control contains chapters written by invited scientists whose research has contributed substantially towards an understanding of the relationship between neuromechanical structures and motor control. The book covers a variety of motor control topics from postural control to the role of biomechanical factors in the production of movement.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to provide current scientific hypotheses and models of motor control for a variety of tasks. Each chapter does a remarkable job in critically evaluating current motor control hypotheses and describing the relation between neurophysiological or biomechanical structures and motor function.
Audience: According to the editor, the audience for this book includes professionals in motor control and related areas such as biomechanics, psychology, neurophysiology, motor development, and neuro-rehabilitation. Graduate students with a strong background in the movement sciences will also be interested in this book.
Features: Readers of the text are introduced to current work conducted by leading researchers in the field. The content includes, but is not limited to, studies of cortical neurons and their relation to voluntary movement, neuromechanical aspects of muscle lengthening versus muscle shortening, and postural control in children with normal development and children with cerebral palsy. The book is effective at introducing a variety of topics related to motor control and includes an intriguing interpretation of Pavlov's ideas versus Bernstein's ideas of neurophysiology and motor control.
Assessment: In my opinion, Dr. Latash has done a marvelous job of assembling leading researchers throughout the world for their contribution in the motor control field, and professionally organizing their work in a text that will serve as an essential resource for those interested in motor control and related areas.

Meet the Author

Mark L. Latash, PhD, is a professor of kinesiology at Penn State University. Since the 1970s, he has worked extensively in normal and disordered motor control. His work has included animal studies, human experiments, modeling, and clinical studies.

The author of Control of Human Movement (Human Kinetics, 1993) and Neurophysiological Basis of Movement (Human Kinetics, 1998), Latash also translated Bernstein's classic, On Dexterity and Its Development (Erlbaum) in 1996. He serves as the editor of the academic journal Motor Control and was a coauthor of Classics in Movement Science (Human Kinetics, 2001).

Latash earned a master's degree in physics of living systems from the Moscow Physico-Technical Institute in 1976 and a PhD in physiology from Rush University in 1989. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience and the American Society of Biomechanics.
