"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, USA "I am impressed by the crystal-clear writing style, exposition, figures, and internal consistency." - Jos Adam, Maastricht University Medical Centre, 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 "This is an ideal comprehensive text for motor control and learning courses as it fills the gap between general neuroscience reference books and psychology-based texts that are 'traditionally' recommended in exercise science and kinesiology programs." - Timothy J. Carroll, School of Human Movement Studies, The University of Queensland, Australia "This book will be a terrific resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of motor control. It tightly integrates behavioral principles with state-of-the-art neuroscience into a modern, accessible, and well-illustrated package." - Rachael D. Seidler, Department of Psychology, School of Kinesiology, Neuroscience Program & Institute of Gerontology, University of Michigan, USA
