  This book provides a clear foundation, based on physical biology and biomechanics, for understanding the underlying mechanisms by which animals have evolved to move in their physical environment. It integrates the biomechanics of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of locomotion. The author also communicates a sense of the awe and 3/5(1). "Proceedings of an International Conference on Neural Control of Locomotion held in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, September October 2, " Description: xiv, pages: illustrations ; 26 cm. What does the swimming leech have to do with the running human? The ability to move actively in space is essential to members of the animal kingdom, and the evolution of the nervous system relates to a large extent to the evolution of locomotion. The extreme importance of locomotion has stimulated many studies of the neural mechanisms underlying locomotion across a range of species. *immediately available upon purchase as print book shipments may be delayed due to the COVID crisis. ebook access is temporary and does not include ownership of the ebook.

Neuronal Control of Locomotion: From Mollusc to Man describes how the brains in very diverse and evolutionarily removed species control the animal's locomotion. In doing so, the authors reveal unifying principles of brain function, making it essential reading for students and researchers in neurobiology generally, and motor control in by: Nelson R. Cabej, in Epigenetic Principles of Evolution (Second Edition), Neural Control of Locomotion. Vertebrate locomotion results from coordinated movement patterns produced by central pattern generators (CPGs) in the central nervous system. It is estimated that mammal locomotion involves activation of hundreds of muscles, and, in particular, phases of the movement cycle, which .

Such lack of understanding is not surprising given that even non-disabled locomotion is poorly understood at the neural control level [6, [19][20][21]. Development of more effective rehabilitation.
