The Psychobiology of the Hand by Kevin J. (University of Sheffield) Connolly


The Psychobiology of the Hand by Kevin J. (University of Sheffield) Connolly

The hand is a remarkable organ which is characteristic of primates and most highly developed in man. This book deals with the evolution and development of hand function, with the structure of the hand and with the hand as a perceptual system. Neurophysiology and psychology of hand function are included, as are problems of disability. With expert interdisciplinary contributions from around the world, this wide-ranging overview is sure to be of value to all those interested in hand function, development, pathology and therapy.


'Probably the most elegant and skilful organ that has been developed through natural selection.'

-Janusch (1966) 'This is one of the few books that synthesize progress in our understanding of the physiological and behavioral principles underlying manipulations of the hand.
The New England Journal of Medicine
