Details

Motor imagery, the mental rehearsal of a motor act without overt movement, has been shown to improve motor performance in healthy subjects. It is well known that motor imagery has the potential to promote greater insight to the development of action planning, because of that, it is now considered a fundamental topic of study in the field of motor behavior. This book addresses emerging practices, the role of motor imagery in physical therapy, and clinical implications of motor imagery as well.
