Advances in Physiological Sciences, Volume 1: Regulatory Functions of the CNS: Principles of Motion and Organization covers the proceedings of the 28th International Congress of Physiological Sciences, held in Budapest in 1980. This text is comprised of six parts. Before presenting the six major topics, this book first explains the principles of neural organization and the perception and action. The first part studies the mechanisms of transmission in the monosynaptic reflex pathway in the spinal cord, while the second part looks into the neural mechanisms of voluntary movements and precentral motor area. Other parts of this book present papers on motor organization, eye movements, sleep, and unitary activity of the brain. This selection will be invaluable to physiologists, students of physiology, and others interested in studying the principles of motion and organization.
