Book Title: The Neuromechanics of Human Movement

Author: Roger Enoka

Book Description:

The study of human movement requires the integration of many seemingly disparate fields of science, including physics, biology, and psychology. My career has been devoted to integrating these areas of science to address questions about how movements are controlled by the nervous system. In the Neuromechanics of Human Movement, Roger Enoka integrates concepts and principles from biomechanics, neuroscience, physiology, and psychology to give the reader a thorough introduction to human movement science. This text, now in its third edition, provides a rigorous discussion of the physical and biological foundations of human movement, and considers how such factors influence motor function and adaptability throughout the lifespan. This approach reflects my own view of kinesiology as a field of study that demands the integration of many concepts and principles from the physical, biological, and psychological sciences.
