  • Movement Specials in APTA's Physical Therapy

    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.

    - A Dynamical Systems Approach to Motor Development (Kamm, Thelen, Jensen)
    - Animal Models Offer the Opportunity to Acquire a New Perspective on Motor
    Development (Bradley)
    - Life-Span Development in Functional Taks (VanSant)
    - Changes in Posture Control Across the Life Span - A Systems Approach (Hines

    - What is Repeated in a Repetition? Effects of Practice Conditions on Motor
    Skill Acquisition (Lee, Swanson, Hall)
    - A Process-Oriented Model of Human Motor Behavior - Toward a Theory-Based
    Rehabilitation Approach (Mulder)

    March 1991 (71/3):
