Human Motor Behavior: An Introduction

By J. A. Scott Kelso | Go to book overview

Contributors' Biographical Information
Steve Keele obtained an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Oregon in 1962. Very shortly after graduation he entered the University of Wisconsin Psychology Department and obtained the Ph.D. degree four years later in 1966. After two years of postdoctoral study with Michael Posner at the University of Oregon's Psychology Department, he joined the faculty there and now is a Professor of Psychology at Oregon.

During that early postdoctoral period, Dr. Posner encouraged Dr. Keele to review the psychological literature on motor behavior. The time was indeed ready for a review, for the resulting Psychological Bulletin paper, "Movement Control in Skilled Motor Behavior," published in 1968, came just when information processing analyses of movement and skill were beginning to mushroom in psychology and physical education. In the ensuing years, the information processing analysis of motor control became a dominant one in those areas. But now new trends are apparent as scientists from many disciplines--physiology, ethology, biomechanics, medicine and others, as well as psychology and physical education--are building an interdisciplinary understanding of motor control. Some of these new developments are reviewed in Dr. Keele chapter, "Behavioral Analysis of Movement," in the Motor Control volume of the Handbook of Physiology.

In addition to his interests in motor behavior, Dr. Keele has been interested in the psychological investigation of attention and, together with Trammel Neil, has recently published "Mechanisms of Attention," a chapter in the Handbook of Perception, Vol. 9.
