Overview

Progress in Motor Control, Volume Three, explores recent progress in theoretical and experimental motor control studies, presenting cutting-edge research and experimental findings in motor control literature. In this reference, you'll find the viewpoints of many of the world's experts in motor control, and you'll see how to apply their latest insights to clinical problems.

Comprehensive and up to date, Progress in Motor Control, Volume Three, continues the tradition of the great Nikolai Bernstein, one of the founders in the field now defined as motor control. This book bridges the gap between theory and practice for professionals working in the area of impaired motor coordination.

Progress in Motor Control, Volume Three, appeals to a broader audience than previous volumes did, crossing into applied areas such as aging, development, and rehabilitation. This new volume highlights changes in motor control with age and neurological disorder, including effects on posture, balance control, motor learning, and rehabilitation after a stroke. It's a valuable resource for a wide range of professionals working in basic and applied areas of motor control.

In this volume, 28 internationally known researchers in the field of motor control present state-of-the-art accounts to help clinicians understand current trends in basic motor control studies. The book includes 12 comprehensive and detailed chapters featuring more than 180 figures and photos that highlight the contributors' methods of research and conclusions from their studies. It is organized into the following four parts:

-Sensorimotor integration

-New approaches to motor variability

-Changes in motor control with age or neurological disorder

-Motor rehabilitation after stroke or spinal cord injury
With the addition of clinical applications, Progress in Motor Control, Volume Three, will become an essential resource to professionals in physical therapy, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and other medical fields. Just as important, it will help to educate future professionals in both basic and applied motor control.
