Human Movement Potential Its Ideokinetic Facilitation

Human Movement Potential Its Ideokinetic Facilitation

Author: Lulu E. Sweigard Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/08/1988

How does movement proceed and how can it be performed with greater efficiency? This book focuses on the interdependence of postural alignment and the performance of movement. The author, whose method of teaching body balance and efficient movement has been the result of many years of research and teaching, offers a point of view and methodology at odds with the generally employed methods of teaching posture, fitness, sport, rehabilitation or any of the performing arts. Students of dance, drama, physical education, as well as practitioners in the health care field will find this a valuable learning tool. Originally published by Harper & Row in 1974.

Tennis Science for Tennis Players

Tennis Science for Tennis Players

Author: Howard Brody Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/03/1987

How does your opponent put that tricky spin on the ball? Why are some serves easier to return than others? The mysteries behind the winning strokes, equipment, and surfaces of the game of tennis are accessibly explained by Howard Brody through the laws of physics. And he gives practical pointers to ways players can use this understanding to advantage in the game. Through extensive laboratory testing and computer modeling, Brody has investigated the physics behind the shape of the tennis racket, the string pattern, the bounce of the tennis ball, the ways a particular court surface can determine the speed of the game, and the many other physical factors involved in tennis.

Control of Human Voluntary Movement

Control of Human Voluntary Movement

Author: J. C. Rothwell Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/02/1987

The human motor system is unique. It talks, walks and can play the piano from a remarkably early age. But it is difficult to study. One cannot impale single neurones with electrodes or lesion discrete areas of the nervous system in man. However, data gleaned from such elegant experiments in lower species that walk on four feet may not reflect the organisation of human motor mechanisms. John Rothwell is one of a small band of human-motor physiologists who have followed the dictum 'The proper study of mankind is man'. In this book, he brings together what is known about human motor physiology in an eminently readable and critical fashion. Of course, there is a stimulating symbiosis between animal and human experimental motor physiology, and this is effected by the integration of critical information that can only be obtained from work on animals with what is known about man. Many disciplines have interest in the mechanisms of human voluntary movement - physiologists, psychologists, physiotherapists and clinicians, be they neurologists or those working in orthopaedics, physical medicine or rehabilitation. All will find John Rothwell's book invaluable. To the beginner it provides an excellent introduction to the subject. To the expert it presents a coherent review of current knowledge and areas of uncertainty. What is abundantly clear is how much more remains to be discovered about how man controls movement. The stimulus provided by this volume will be invaluable to thought and experiment.

Children and Sport Paediatric Work Physiology

Author: Juhani Ilmarinen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/06/1984

The aim of the European Group for Paediatric Work Physiology is to promote the in- ternational exchange of scientific information relevant to the physiology of exercise in of physiologists, paediatricians, and physical growing individuals. The group consists educators. The main purpose of these meetings has been to provide scientists in this field with an informal and efficient channel for mutual discussion. Meetings have previously been held in the Federal Republic ofGermany, Czechoslo- vakia, Israel, Belgium, Canada, and Sweden. This time, it was a great honor us to be entrusted with the organization ofthe Tenth Symposium ofPaediatric Work Physiolo- gy. The congress took place in Joutsa, a small community in central Finland.It was our wish to bring the group together in the middle of the Finnish summer in a forest hotel by one of our thousands of lakes, providing a peaceful and stimulating atmos- phere for discussions on recent research activities. The meeting was fInancially assisted by the Finnish Ministry ofEducation, the com- munity of Joutsa, the Rantasipi Joutsenlampi Hotel, Joutsa, as well as Tunturipyorii, Turku, Finland. We wish to express our sincere gratitude to all the sponsors. We would like to thank all the participants for their valuable contributions. We believe that the papers presented will greatly enhance further understanding and re- search in the work physiology of children and adolescents.

The Reenchantment of the World

The Reenchantment of the World

Author: Morris Berman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/11/1981

The Reenchantment of the World is a perceptive study of our scientific consciousness and a cogent and forceful challenge to its supremacy. Focusing on the rise of the mechanistic idea that we can know the natural world only by distancing ourselves from it, Berman shows how science acquired its controlling position in the consciousness of the West. He analyzes the holistic, animistic tradition-destroyed in the wake of Scientific Revolution of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries-which viewed man as a participant in the cosmos, not as an isolated observer. Arguing that the holistic world view must be revived in some credible form before we destroy our society and our environment, he explores the possibilities for a consciousness appropriate to the modern era. Ecological rather than animistic, this new world view would be grounded in the real and intimate connection between man and nature.
