  • Books on Motor Control

    Dear List-Members,

    We have the pleasure to announce that a Book
    Towards un understanding of the role of Motor Control - from simple systems
    to Human Performance

    is available to be ordered
    The present Book is the outcome of the Second Varna 2001 Conference on
    Motor Control MCC2001
    September 09 - 12, 2001, Varna, Bulgaria
    Organized at the Black Sea coast, resort St. Constantine near Varna,
    Bulgaria, 09 - 12 September 2001.
    The theme of this Book is Motor Control. The Book is divided into 7
    Sections. The papers are grouped into Sections reflecting the main idea of
    the Varna Conference to address the studies in Motor Control from Basic
    Motor Control to functional recovery.
    1. The first section is entitled "Integration of Posture and Movements in
    animals" addressing the underlying neural mechanisms responsible its
    generation and control.
    2. The second section is devoted to "Balance and Locomotion control in
    3. The third section "Control of reaching movements" addressing daily life
    motor task, the way we control reaching movements to precision grip.
    4. In the forth section "Central organization of Motor Control" using
    contemporary approach of studding based on transcranial magnetic
    stimulation or repetitive electrical stimulation on the somatosensory
    evoked fields the mechanisms of central organization of Motor Control are
    5. In section fifth "Equilibrium point theory - hypothesis and comments"
    the hypothesis and comments on Equilibrium Point EP theory is discussed
    from different points of view.
    6. In section sixth section 'Movement disorders" this time with more
    particular attention on Parkinson's disease and problems as a function of
    stroke incidents are addressed.
    7. In the last seventh section "Functional recovery" the rehabilitation
    strategies for motor control recovery are addressed. Starting from
    improving hand function to neurorehabilitation of reach to grasp movement
    to functional recovery of balance control are the questions addressed in
    this section.

    We would like to inform you that you can also order

    The Book with Papers from the first Conference on Motor Control MCC1999
    Organized at Varna, Bulgaria, 22 - 26 September 1999.

    Concepts, Theories and Models, Present State and Perspective

    The theme of this Book is Motor Control. The book is organized in
    5 major sections. The main idea was to represent the questions addressed in
    the field of Motor Control from experimental points of view starting with
    animal experiments (rats, cats and monkeys).
    The integration of posture and movement into an elaborate system
    is addressed in the first section. The second section is devoted to
    postural control and posturo - kinetic co-ordination, presenting concepts,
    theories and models. The third part is related to the cyclic daily life
    motor task, the way we are able to keep locomotion revealing its basic
    mechanisms and the ones of functional recovery. The important role of
    different sensory inputs related to reflex and central organization of
    impaired posture and movement is discussed in the fourth section.
    Organization and control of the upper limb movement is the topic of the
    fifth section. Special attention is paid to the EP point theory being
    considered from various modern viewpoints presented in the Round table

    And the Book
    MOTOR CONTROL Today and tomorrow
    Edited by Gantcho GANTCHEV, Shigemi MORI and Jean MASSION

    This Book is organized in 4 major sections and is an outcome of
    contribution of leading scientists in the field of Motor Control.

    First section. Spinal and brainstem mechanisms of Motor Control
    Second section. Peripheral and central mechanisms in skill
    performance and acquisition
    Third section. Internal Models of Motor Control
    Forth section. Co-ordinate actions in healthy and patients

    Presented during the First Conference on Motor Control MCC1999
