Overview This new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded, making it more comprehensive and accessible to students. With eight new chapters and 130 pages of fresh material, 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 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. This book promotes independent thinking and enhances knowledge of basic facts about the design of cells, muscles, neuronal structures and the whole body for better understanding of typical and atypical movement production related to the nervous system and the functioning brain.
