9780195173154: Human Hand Function

Hands are miraculous tools that are used both for sensing and acting on the world. Although a great deal of research has been conducted on human hand function, there is no coherent presentation of it to guide those seeking to understand its current state. This volume surveys normal hand function in healthy individuals and presents a new conceptual framework for organising and analysing what is known about it. Jones and Lederman organise human-hand research on a continuum that ranges from activities that are essentially sensory to those with a strong motor component. They distinguish four broad categories along the continuum: tactile sensing, active haptic sensing, sensory-guided action, and non-prehensile skilled movements. These categories are used to consider critical aspects of the hand, including the sensory and motor basis of manual function, the role of different parts of the hand in perception and action, tasks the hand can perform, and the changes in manual function from birth to old age. The framework meaningfully organises a vast number of studies of hand function and identifies those areas requiring additional study. This volume is intended as a reference for researchers and clinicians in neuroscience, cognitive science, cognitive and developmental psychology, gerontology, kinesology, hand surgery and rehabilitation medicine, mechanical engineering and robotics, and computer science.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Hardcover. 280 pages. Dimensions: 10.1in. x 7.2in. x 1.0in.Human Hand Function is a multidisciplinary book that reviews the sensory and motor aspects of normal hand function from both neurophysiological and behavioral perspectives. Lynette Jones and Susan Lederman present hand function as a continuum ranging from activities that are essentially sensory in nature to those that have a strong motor component. They delineate four categories of function along this sensorimotor continuum--tactile sensing, active haptic sensing, prehension, and non-prehensile skilled movements--that they use as a framework for analyzing and synthesizing the results from a broad range of studies that have contributed to our understanding of how the normal human hand functions. The book begins with a historical overview of research on the hand and a discussion of the hands evolutionary development in terms of anatomical structure. The subsequent chapters review the research in each of the four categories along the continuum, covering topics such as the intensive spatial, temporal, and thermal sensitivity of the hand, the role of hand movements in recognizing common objects, the control of reaching and grasping movements, and the organization of keyboard skills. Jones and Lederman also examine how sensory and motor function develops in the hand from birth to old age, and how the nature of the end effector (e. g. , a single finger or the whole hand) that is used to interact with the environment influences the types of information obtained and the tasks performed. The book closes with an assessment of how basic research on the hand has contributed to an array of more applied domains, including communication systems for the blind, haptic interfaces used in teleoperation and virtual-environment applications, tests used to assess hand impairments, and haptic exploration in art. Human Hand Function will be a valuable resource for student and professional researchers in neuroscience, cognitive psychology, engineering, human-technology interaction, and physiology.
