Neuromechanics of
Human Movement

One of the best textbooks on the nervous system’s effects on muscles and motion is Roger M. Enoka’s Neuromechanical Basis of Kinesiology (Human Kinetics). If you are a serious student of biomechanics, you probably own a copy, as it differs from the traditional approach of biomechanics, which focuses on the mechanics of human motion without consideration of the sensory system. A fourth edition (2008) of this book is currently available, but the title has been changed to Neuromechanics of Human Movement.
This expanded edition contains more than 750 illustrations, many that have been upgraded from the previous edition, and includes the most current references – in fact, the text contains more than 1,500 citations! The new edition has updated discussions about electromyography, research developments in rehabilitation, the effects of aging on the nervous system – and much, much more.
Neuromechanics of Human Movement is certainly not light reading, and those without a physical science background will find most of the material too technical. However, this book has its place as one of the most significant contributions to the field of physical education, biomechanics and neurophysiology
