Table of Contents

"James Tresilian has written the most detailed, comprehensive text in motor control and learning – a must for those in the field." - Jane Clark, Kinesiology Department, University of Maryland

"I am impressed by the crystal-clear writing style, exposition, figures, and internal consistency." -Jos Adam, Maastricht University Medical Center, The Netherlands

"A valuable new addition in a field where up-to-date and comprehensive texts suitable for the newcomer are few and far between." -Kielan Yarrow, Department of Psychology, City University London, UK
