About this product
- DescriptionHow does vision, attention and memory combine to allow for movement? This book explains it all. To interact with the environment, an individual must code, store and translate spatial information into the appropriate motor commands. Working from this premise, this new book discusses how visual perception, attention and memory are linked to the processes of movement. As a resource for motor control and motor learning researchers, students, educators and clinicians, this book offers comprehensive coverage of current literature on the visual control of goal-directed movement. The book also presents a systematic explication of the sensory and physiological processes and systems responsible for fast, accurate and efficient performance. Especially relevant to professionals and scientists concerned with skill instruction and rehabilitation, the final part of the text provides a review of recent research on how and why limb control changes occur with practice and development. In addition, the book considers how the research presented can maximise precision, efficiency and safety in workspace design. How does vision, attention and memory combine to allow for movement? This book explains it all.
