A multi-disciplinary examine the present kingdom of data relating to motor regulate and movement—from molecular biology to robotics
The final twenty years have obvious a dramatic bring up within the variety of refined instruments and methodologies for exploring motor keep watch over and stream. Multi-unit recordings, molecular neurogenetics, machine simulation, and new clinical techniques for learning how muscle tissues and physique anatomy remodel motor neuron job into circulation have helped revolutionize the field. Neurobiology of Motor Control brings jointly contributions from an interdisciplinary team of specialists to supply a evaluate of the present kingdom of data concerning the initiation and execution of circulation, in addition to the newest tools and instruments for investigating them.
The ebook levels from the findings of easy scientists learning version organisms corresponding to mollusks and Drosophila, to biomedical researchers investigating vertebrate motor construction to neuroengineers operating to boost robot and clever prostheses applied sciences. Following foundational chapters on present molecular organic innovations, neuronal ensemble recording, and desktop simulation, it explores a vast variety of similar issues, together with the evolution of motor platforms, directed certain routine, plasticity and studying, and robotics.
- Explores motor keep watch over and circulate in a large choice of organisms, from basic invertebrates to human beings
- Offers concise summaries of motor keep watch over platforms throughout various animals and circulate types
- Explores an array of instruments and methodologies, together with electrophysiological recommendations, neurogenic and molecular ideas, huge ensemble recordings, and computational methods
- Considers unresolved questions and the way present clinical advances can be used to unravel them going forward
Written in particular to inspire interdisciplinary realizing and collaboration, and supplying the main wide-ranging, well timed, and complete examine the technology of motor regulate and circulation presently available, Neurobiology of Motor Control is a must-read for all who learn circulate creation and the neurobiological foundation of movement—from molecular biologists to roboticists.
