About this book

This volume is the most recent installment of the Progress in Motor Control series. It contains contributions based on presentations by invited speakers at the Progress in Motor Control IX meeting held in at McGill University, Montreal, in July, 2013. Progress in Motor Control is the official scientific meeting of the International Society of Motor Control (ISMC). The Progress in Motor Control IXI meeting, and consequently this volume, provide a broad perspective on the latest research on motor control in humans and other species.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an excellent review of current and past research on cerebral cortical control of actions and movements from the motor control standpoint. … I will endorse this book to physiologists, motor control students and experts alike. Graduate students, medical students, and fellows will find this work valuable for their research.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, November, 2014)
