Coordination represents one of the most striking, most taken for granted, but least understood features of living things. Recently a new foundation for understanding coordination has emerged called Coordination Dynamics. This book brings together scientists from all over the world who have defined and developed the field of Coordination Dynamics. Grounded in the concepts of self-organization and the tools of nonlinear dynamics, appropriately extended to handle informational aspects of living things, Coordination Dynamics aims to understand the coordinated functioning of a variety of different systems at multiple levels of description. The book addresses the themes of Coordination Dynamics and Dynamic Patterns in the context of the following topics: Coordination of Brain and Behavior, Perception-Action Coupling, Control, Posture, Learning, Intention, Attention, and Cognition.
Philosophical Investigations of Coordination Dynamics: Perception and Action.- Cognitive Contributions to Coordination Dynamics: Attention, Intention and Learning.- Coordination Dynamics of Posture: Control Mechanisms.- Perceptual and Motoric Influences on Coordination Dynamics.- Integration and Segregation in Coordination Dynamics.
