- Clinical Kinesiology and Anatomy
Emphasis on clinical insights and functional connections. This edition is suitable for a clinical kinesiology course to help students analyze the mobility of specific joints in various activities of daily living. The chapters describe the various body systems, terminology, and biomechanical principles.
- Fundamentals of Motor Control
Motor control is a relatively young field of research exploring how the nervous system produces purposeful, coordinated movements in its interaction with the body and the environment through conscious and unsconscious thought. This book covers all the major perspectives in motor control, with a balanced approach.
- The Hidden Mechanics of Exercise
The Hidden Mechanics of Exercise reveals the microworld of the body in motion, from motor proteins that produce force to enzymes that extract energy from food, and tackles questions athletes ask: What should we ingest before and during a race? How does a hard workout trigger changes in our muscles? Why does exercise make us feel good?
