This second edition covers a wide range of topics, including movement disorders and current theories of motor control and co-ordination. By emphasising the neurophysiological mechanisms relevant to the processes of generating voluntary movements, the text targets advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students who want to understand how the brain generates control signals and how the peripheral apparatus executes them. The eight new chapters in this book focus on motor control and motor synergies, prehension, changes in movement with ageing, typical and atypical development, neuromuscular peripheral disorders and disorders of the spinal cord.Beres-Jones, J.A., T.D.
