The "Handbook of Perception and Action Series" overviews state-of-the-art research in these two areas, while also stressing the functional relationships between them. The three-volume set should be useful to researchers, technicians, graduate students, and final-year undergraduates in psychology, developmental psychology, speech and hearing, neuropsychology, neuroscience, and physiology.;This up-to-date volume focuses on the study of action, or "motor control", which examines movement and skill and the internal processes that lead to them. As action is interrelated with cognition, this is a vigorous field of investigation. Written by international experts, this volume provides current reviews on general processes important to motor control - learning, coordination, timing, planning, and control - and on the individual skills of throwing, catching, reaching, and typing. The text describes important conceptual and methodological advances regarding control theory and timing, and is divided into two sections which analyze skill from the perspectives of general processes and individual skills.
