Neuromechanics of Human Movement, Fifth Edition, draws on the disciplines of neurophysiology and physics to explore how the nervous system controls the actions of muscles to produce human motion. This contemporary approach is much different from the traditional approach, which focuses solely on mechanics and does not consider the role of the sensorimotor system in the control of human movement. Authored by Roger Enoka, a widely recognized and esteemed scholar in neuromechanics, this influential text is an essential resource in biomechanics, motor learning, and applied physiology, making complex information accessible to students.

The idea that humans are by nature social and political animals can be traced back to Aristotle. More recently, it has also generated great interest and controversy in related disciplines such as anthropology, biology, psychology, neuroscience and even economics. What is it about humans that enabled them to construct a social reality of unrivalled complexity? Is there something distinctive about the human mind that explains how social lives are organised around conventions, norms, and institutions? The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of the Social Mind is an outstanding reference source to the key topics and debates in this exciting subject and is the first collection of its kind. An international team of contributors present perspectives from diverse areas of research in philosophy, drawing on comparative and developmental psychology, evolutionary anthropology, cognitive neuroscience, and behavioural economics. The thirty-two original chapters are divided into five parts: The evolution of the social mind: including the social intelligence hypothesis, co- evolution of culture and cognition, ethnic cognition, and cooperation; Developmental and comparative perspectives: including primate and infant understanding of mind, shared intentionality, and moral cognition; Mechanisms of the moral mind: including norm compliance, social emotion, and implicit attitudes; Naturalistic approaches to shared and collective intentionality: including joint action, team reasoning and group thinking, and social kinds; Social forms of selfhood and mindedness: including moral identity, empathy and shared emotion, normativity and intentionality. Essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy of mind and psychology, The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of the Social Mind is also suitable for those in related disciplines such as social psychology, cognitive neuroscience, economics and sociology.

The idea of interfacing minds with machines has long captured the human imagination. Recent advances in neuroscience and engineering are making this a reality, opening the door to restoration and augmentation of human physical and mental capabilities. Medical applications such as cochlear implants for the deaf and neurally controlled prosthetic limbs for the paralyzed are becoming almost commonplace. Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are also increasingly being used in security, lie detection, alertness monitoring, telepresence, gaming, education, art, and human augmentation. This introduction to the field is designed as a textbook for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in neural engineering or brain-computer interfacing for students from a wide range of disciplines. It can also be used for self-study and as a reference by neuroscientists, computer scientists, engineers, and medical practitioners. Key features include questions and exercises in each chapter and a supporting website.

In this book the author and his coworkers try to show how fruitful is to deal with current scientific matters for philosophy and theology. The book will give some insights and open new paths of reflection rather than giving a systematic or accomplished summary. In particular, the author and his coworkers deal with these problems by dialoguing with three classical authors, each coming from one of the fields involved: Albert Einstein for science, Aristotle for philosophy and St Thomas Aquinas for theology. In this way, we shall discover that many of the problems raised in the current research can find a new light when examined through the eyes of these classical examinations.The Introduction, which tries to sketch the historical and contemporary background of the book, is followed by five other chapters. Chapter 2 develops some epistemological reflections on the sciences, philosophy of nature and theology of nature. Chapter 3 journeys among several scientific disciplines and branches with the aim of grasping the main fundamental lessons that the scientific research may offer to philosophy and theology. Such a journey brings to three heuristic philosophical principles in view of a renewed philosophy of nature. The following chapter (Chapter 4) opens to a further dimension, the theological one, trying to envisage some theological hints that can derive when the previous analysis is confronted with St Thomas' thought and approach. The fifth chapter addresses anthropological matters in the light of the epistemological, philosophical and theological enquires conducted in the previous chapters. A conclusive chapter that summarizes all the main results follows.
