The Routledge Handbook of Motor Control and Motor Learning is the first book to offer a comprehensive survey of neurophysiological, behavioural and biomechanical aspects of motor function. Adopting an integrative approach, world-leading neuroscientists and motor behaviour experts examine the full range of key topics in contemporary human movement studies, explaining motor behaviour in depth from the molecular level to behavioural consequences.The first part of the book introduces general models of motor control and motor learning, including fundamental principles of development, training and rehabilitation. The second part of the book examines the ways in which our understanding of motor control is applied in a range of contexts as diverse as sport, neurorehabilitation and the development of motor skills in children and older people, exploring current knowledge of neural control in functional movements and their adaptability in response to specific interventions.Drawing explicit connections between the theoretical, investigative and applied components of human movement research, this book is both a definitive subject guide and an important contribution to the contemporary research agenda. It is important reading for students, scholars and researchers working in sports and exercise science, kinesiology, physical therapy, medicine and neuroscience.
