Dear Biomch-L readers,

Movement Science is on the move: Physical Therapy, the Journal of the American
Physical Therapy Association has published a four-part Special Series on Move-
ment Science in the December 1990 - March 1991 issues, totalling 23 contribu-
tions including two from Biomch-L subscribers. Having just read some of the
contributions, it seems worth-while to announce the titles on this list.

The series is preceded by an introduction (Dec. 1990, Vol. 70, nr. 12, pp. 759
- 762) "Movement Science and its Relevance to Physical Therapy" by Carolee J.
Winstein and Harry G. Knecht.
