The relationship between perception and action constitutes ne of the most interesting aspects of brain function. This book takes a multidisciplinary approach to studying the problems of manipulation, orienting and navigating in humans and animals. Its premise is that control of movement is based on a configuration of several sensory cues, all providing input. Head movement, body orientation and spatial navigation are just a few examples where a variety of sensory cues are used. The authors also make an effort to place the study of multisensory control of movement in a three-dimensional frame, with reference to computer models and nueronal mechanisms. This work should be of interest to researchers, clinicians and advanced students in neuroscience, psychology and neurology. It also has implications for researchers in biomedical engineering and robotics. Alain Berthoz is the author of "The Head-Neck Motor System".
