Multisensory Control of Movement

Alain Berthoz


Truly international, this extensive text combines the efforts of eight laboratories from seven countries in investigating the study of problems of manipulation, orienting, and navigating in humans and animals. The multidisciplinary approach places the study of multisensory control of movement in a three-dimensional frame, with reference to computer models and neuronal mechanisms.

Keywords: manipulation, orienting, navigating, multisensory control, movement, computer models, neuronal mechanisms, humans, animals, three-dimensional frame
