The book is written for those ones who want to understand the functioning of the human brain at the neuronal network level (human neurophysiology), repair the human brain following injury and to copy it artificially. The human neurophysiologists from medical faculties should be interested, but they rarely exist. Most researchers, exploring the human brain, are not interested, because they are missing the medical education and prefer to speculate from animal experiments. But young assistances and students with medical and movement science background are interested to repair the human brain by movement-based learning. In education it should be taught how the human brain is functioning and how it can be repaired.
Physiotherapists and movement scientists should be interested. Patients with nervous system diseases are interested (especially with Parkinson’s disease); the only problem is that the level of the book is too high. The many practical figures of treatment may help to understand something.
The NASA should be interested, because with the special coordination dynamics therapy device astronauts could exercise in space and their nervous system functioning, including the vegetative nervous system, could be measured simultaneously when exercising and the online data could be send down to earth to see in what condition of the astronauts is.
Trainer in sport should be interested, because coordination dynamics therapy can improve the performance (especially with respect to coordination, football tennis, cricket) in healthy and disabled athletes. But most couches are missing the education to understand.
