Technological advances in the study of neuromotor control in the 1990s led to many new diagnostic procedures and the improved ability to restore impaired motor functions.

This book presents the proceedings of the ninth conference of the International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology (ISEK'92), held in Florence, Italy, in June 1992. ISEK is a multidisciplinary organization composed of scientists from a number of complementary research areas, including neurophysiology, neurology, and bioengineering, and the application of advanced rehabilitation technologies. The conference was attended by more than 400 people, including some of the most outstanding scientists in the field, who presented recent results of their research.

The book begins with a round table session, followed by sections covering motor control; clinical applications; functional electrical stimulation (FES); and muscle fatigue. The remainder of the book is divided into 15 ‘sessions’ covering topics which include: neuromotor control; basic EMG; motion analysis; movement disorders; ergonomics; cortical and spinal stimulation; and rehabilitation methods.

Providing an interesting overview of the research, developments and clinical applications of the time, this book will be of interest to all those working in research as well as clinicians.
