DESCRIPTION

Compiled as a result of the Thirteenth Symposium of the Association for Attention and Performance, this collection focuses on the Symposium's theme: Organization of Action. The book is arranged in sections which provide a comprehensive view of the main issues raised during the meeting. Several aspects of the theme were considered, including:

the anatomical and physiological constraints on motor preparation and execution

. the influence of control (proprioceptive, cutaneous, visual, oculomotor) signals

the contribution of kinematics to the understanding of the underlying mechanisms

and the role of cognitive constraints such as attention or learning in goal selection

This new volume is of particular interest to professionals and researchers in cognitive psychology, physiology, and neuropsychology as well as those studying motor skills.
