Neuromechanics of Human Movement, Fifth Edition, draws on the disciplines of neurophysiology and physics to explore how the nervous system controls the actions of muscles to produce human motion. This contemporary approach is much different from the traditional approach, which focuses solely on mechanics and does not consider the role of the sensorimotor system in the control of human movement. Authored by Roger Enoka, a widely recognized and esteemed scholar in neuromechanics, this influential text is an essential resource in biomechanics, motor learning, and applied physiology, making complex information accessible to students.

The great scientists of the past who shaped the field of movement science are frequently cited in textbooks and research papers. But rarely do students and scholars have the opportunity to actually read the original papers–either they're not translated into English, or they're simply not accessible. Now Classics in Movement Sciencemakes it easy for inquisitive minds to access, read, understand, and appreciate the works and wisdom of the past and put them into historical and contemporary scientific perspective. This fascinating book presents–under one cover–a selection of 13 classical papers representing the thinking of famous scientists of the past who worked in areas now associated with biomechanics, neurophysiology of movement, and motor control. Each paper is accompanied by a thoughtful analysis by a contemporary authority in movement science, and hence reflecting a subjective viewpoint of the commentator. Bringing together a variety of old and new perspectives, this unique format provides readers with an understanding of the influential scientist as well as his or her contemporary counterpart. In some cases, the book presents the classical paper in its entirety; in other cases, a significant excerpt or quotation is provided. Either way, you can read for yourself–without concern about misrepresentation–the groundbreaking ideas expressed by Woodworth, Hill, Sherrington, Bernstein, Fenn, Hughlings Jackson, Denny-Brown, and others. Classics in Movement Sciencebegins with a thorough and provocative introductory chapter on the beginnings of movement science, which sets the stage for the rest of the book. The text is well illustrated, featuring 90 rich representations of drawings contained in the original classics. Classics in Movement Scienceis the only text of its kind available today. It provides students and scholars of movement science with a lively and varied forum for analyzing the great ideas of the past and their development at present.

Symbol Pattern and Symmetry

Symbol, Pattern and Symmetry: The Cultural Significance of Structure investigates how pattern and symbol has functioned in visual arts, exploring how connections and comparisons in geometrical pattern can be made across different cultures and how the significance of these designs has influenced craft throughout history. The book features illustrative examples of symbol and pattern from a wide range of historical and cultural contexts, from Byzantine, Persian and Assyrian design, to case studies of Japanese and Chinese patterns. Looking at each culture's specific craft style, Hann shows how the visual arts are underpinned with a strict geometric structure, and argues that understanding these underlying structures enables us to classify and compare data from across cultures and historical periods. Richly illustrated with both colour and black and white images, and with clear, original commentary, the book enables students, practitioners, teachers and researchers to explore the historical and cultural significance of symbol and pattern in craft and design, ultimately displaying how a geometrical dialogue in design can be established through history and culture.
