Human Movement: In Search of Borderlands Between Philosophy and Physics

Scott Kretchmar and Mark L. Latash

different levels, including rules associated with respective laws of nature, will increase and decrease depending on both external conditions and the status of various parts of the interacting three-level system. Some rules may be inherently stronger than others, but context always makes a significant

Motor Control: Creating a Natural Science of Biological Movement

Mark L. Latash

exploring laws of nature that define the interaction among the central nervous system, peripheral motor apparatus, sensory organs, and the environment during biological movements. Laws of nature are concise descriptions of our observations of objects. Commonly, they are expressed as equations that link

On Primitives in Motor Control

Mark L. Latash

of this concept compatible with the approach to the neural control of movement based on laws of nature, the physical approach. The notion of primitives has been used in fields other than motor control, in particular in studies of perception (e.g.,  Logothetis & Sheinberg, 1996 ) and cognition (e

Abundant Degrees of Freedom Are Not a Problem

Mark L. Latash

computing requisite neural signals from brain structures to produce appropriate forces that would lead to desired actions. The alternative approach views the CNS as a physical (physiological) system that performs no computational operations but behaves according to laws of nature. Of course, researchers

Motor Control: A Conceptual Framework for Rehabilitation

Mindy F. Levin and Daniele Piscitelli
