MOVEMENT CONTROL -- An interdisciplinary forum

(Proceedings of a symposium in January 1991 at the Faculty of Human
Movement Sciences, Free University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

Editors: Ron Jacobs & Walther E.I. Rikkert

In order to sustain life, humans have to explore the environment and engage in
a wide range of activities. Beyond an appreciation of the general functions
of movements, questions remain unanswered about the nature of their control,
coordination and regulation. Movement control is not a simple business but
a complex interplay between various components situated at different levels.
The issue can be approached from different scales of analysis. The aim of
this book is to illustrate some of the current approaches to the study of
movement control which is by its very nature an interdisciplinary endeavor.
