Despite the intensive experimental and theoretical studies for over a century, the general processes involved in neural control of pasture and movement, in learning of motor behaviour in healthy subjects and in adaptation in pathology were and remain a challenging problems for the scientists in the field of sensorimotor control. The book is the outcome of the Advanced Research Workshop Sensorimotor Control, where the focus was on the state and the perspectives of the study in the field.

The human hand can take on a huge variety of shapes and functions, providing its owner with a powerful hammer at one time or a delicate pair of forceps at another. The universal utility of the hand is even more enhanced by the ability to amplify the function of the hand by using tools. To understand and appreciate how the human brain controls movements of the hand, it is important to investigate both the healthy motor behaviour and dysfunction during everyday manipulative tasks. This book provides a contemporary summary of the physiology and pathophysiology of the manipulative and exploratory functions of the human hand. With contributions from scientists and clinical researchers of biomechanics, kinesiology, neurophysiology, psychology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, it covers the development of healthy human grasping over the lifespan, the wide spectrum of disability in the pathological state and links basic motor research with modern brain sciences.

We introduce a biomimetic simulation framework for investigating human perception and sensorimotor control. Our framework is unique in that it features a biomechanically simulated musculoskeletal human model actuated by 823 muscles. The anthropomorphic model has two human-like eyes whose retinas contain spatially nonuniform arrangements of photoreceptors. The sensorimotor control system of our human model comprises a set of 15 automatically-trained, fully-connected deep neural networks. Two networks control the saccadic eye movement functionality of its binocular, foveated perception system. The remaining networks achieve neuromuscular control of the skeletal muscles. One network controls the 216 neck muscles that actuate the neck-head biomechanical complex, producing controlled head movements. In our prototype model, 3 networks control each limb; in particular, the 29 muscles in each of the two arms and the 39 muscles in each of the two legs. Thus, the virtual human demonstrates eective sensorimotor control of its eyes, head, and four limbs driven exclusively by visual perception to achieve a nontrivial motor task. We also demonstrate that its foveated perceptual system is capable of appearance-based recognition.

Information Processing in Motor Control and Learning provides the theoretical ideas and experimental findings in the field of motor behavior research. The text presents a balanced combination of theory and empirical data. Chapters discuss several theoretical issues surrounding skill acquisition; motor programming; and the nature and significance of preparation, rapid movement sequences, attentional demands, and sensorimotor integration in voluntary movements. The book will be interesting to psychologists, neurophysiologists, and graduate students in related fields.

This book proposes a transdisciplinary approach to investigating human motor control that synthesizes musculoskeletal biomechanics and neural control. The authors argue that this integrated approach -- which uses the framework of robotics to understand sensorimotor control problems -- offers a more complete and accurate description than either a purely neural computational approach or a purely biomechanical one. The authors offer an account of motor control in which explanatory models are based on experimental evidence using mathematical approaches reminiscent of physics. These computational models yield algorithms for motor control that may be used as tools to investigate or treat diseases of the sensorimotor system and to guide the development of algorithms and hardware that can be incorporated into products designed to assist with the tasks of daily living. The authors focus on the insights their approach offers in understanding how movement of the arm is controlled and how the control adapts to changing environments. The book begins with muscle mechanics and control, progresses in a logical manner to planning and behavior, and describes applications in neurorehabilitation and robotics. The material is self-contained, and accessible to researchers and professionals in a range of fields, including psychology, kinesiology, neurology, computer science, and robotics.

Bringing together the expertise of leading research practitioners in the field, the second edition of Clinical Management of Sensorimotor Speech Disorders is an up-to-date reference for the underlying theory and the basic principles of assessment and treatment. This book provides a solid foundation in the conceptual framework essential for classifying and differentiating disorders according to clinical categories. It covers the theory underlying measurement strategies including acoustic, kinematic, aerodynamic, and electromyographic techniques, and guides the reader through treatments for each disorder. New in this edition is a comprehensive section with in-depth coverage of the diseases, syndromes, and pathologic conditions which are accompanied by sensorimotor speech disorders. These chapters provide concise descriptions of the disease and its signs and symptoms, neuropathology, epidemiology, and etiology. Each chapter goes on to present the speech impairment associated with the disorder and its signs and symptoms, etiology, neuropathology, associated cognitive, linguistic, and communicative signs and symptoms, special diagnostic considerations, treatment, and key references.Features: Clear articulation of theoretical issues provides a strong foundation for the clinical management of the dysarthrias, apraxia, and speech problems secondary to hearing loss New chapter on neurogenic fluency disorders Extensive discussion of neuropathologic conditions that cause sensorimotor speech disorders Authoritative and comprehensive, this expanded edition will prove to be the reference of choice for students in speech-language pathology programs as well as clinicians and researchers.

Close your eyes and ask yourself, 'what do I feel?' What was your experience? Did you feel the physical presence of your body - its size, its shape? Did you feel any of your body's needs, like hunger or thirst? You probably also had a sense of whether you were feeling healthy or unwell. All of these sensations are kinds of body feelings, and although many of them are always present, in modern life we don't pay much attention to them. Most of the time they lurk in the background of our consciousness, and we may hardly notice our bodies at all unless we swivel our heads down to look at them. But our experiences, our thoughts, our minds entire, are dependent upon and shaped by our bodies and what they do. The minds that we have, the experiences we have, are the way they are because of our bodies. What we see and hear, our agonies and ecstasies, how we think, everything we do depends upon our bodies and reflects their form and structure: our feeling of being alive is the feeling of having, controlling and using a physical body. How are all the bodily feelings produced? What are they telling us and can they be trusted? This book answers these questions and takes you on a tour through your innards and into the deep recesses of the mind, and from there to your conscious thoughts, perceptions and emotions.

For use either as a reference or as a text for graduate students, presents an approach to motor control studies based upon control of the equilibrium states on the neuromotor system an approach that originates from the classic works by Nicholai Bernstein and intensively developed during the last three decades. A strong back ground in physiology, physics, mathematics, and control theory is desirable.
