Editorial Reviews


"If you believe that the solution to Bernstein's problem--"understanding the behavior of complex, multivariable systems"--lies in the study of single joint movements, this book is for you. It is a beautifully written treatise, a tour de force, on the control of simple movements. For the first time, we are provided a clear exposition of the various versions of the popular equilibrium point hypothesis." J.A. Scott Kelso, PhD Center for Complex Systems, Florida Atlantic University

"Our active movements arise from global changes in the equilibrium state of the nervous system as a result of the interaction of the motor apparatus with external forces and sensory information from the environment. This idea which rejects the traditional view of direct programming or calculation of muscle force and kinematic variables for movement production is well presented in this book." A.G. Feldman, PhD, DSc Senior researcher, professor, Institute for Biomedical Engineering, University of Montreal Research Center for Rehabilitation Institute
