This book represents the only comprehensive treatment of eye-hand coordination and how it changes as a function of age. Topics included represent the latest in theory, research, and practice. Reflected here is an international approach, with writings from the world's leading authorities on topics such as: the environmental and genetic contributions to eye-hand coordination; basic neurophysiological processes involved in visuo-motor control; object manipulation and control in children and aging adults; a life-span perspective of specific eye-hand coordination behaviors; and the pathology of visuo-motor control.
