Show Summary Details

Preview

The study of the human body in motion is a dynamic discipline. Since the earliest observations, techniques have been refined and models rendered more precisely. In spite of this refinement, current research bears a remarkable continuity with the approach utilized in the seminal works of the 1970s. Thus, the study of the human body in motion is characterized by both continuity and progress. This book aims to shed light both on the most recent advances and the common underpinnings in research on the dynamic human body. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords: body perception; human body; motion; continuity; progress
