Introduction and overview: complementary approaches to movement control / [A.J.W.M. Thomassen, D.A. Rosenbaum, and P.C.W. van Wieringen] --Simple models of walking and jumping / R. McNeill. An important theory of sequencing and timing is embodied in the concept of response chaining.

The idea is that the stimulus produced by a movement triggers the next movement in the sequence. Kinematics, which describes the appearance of motion, is distinguished from kinetics, the forces associated with motion. Linear kinematics involves the shape, form, pattern, and sequencing of linear movement through time.

In this book Kelso proposes a new, general framework within which to connect brain, mind, and behavior.”. “Kelso begins with a general account of dynamic pattern formation.

He then takes up behavior, focusing initially on identifying pattern-forming instabilities in human. Anatomy of Movement presents a dynamic, integrated approach to the study of the physical structures of the musculoskeletal system and their functional relationship to the movements of the human body.

In Cited by: The Psychology of Human Movement is a collection of papers dealing with experimental work involving psychology, kinesiology, physical education, and neurophysiology. These papers have as their central theme, the higher order, organizational processes contributing to coordinated goal-directed movement.
