Author notes provided by Syndetics

Mark L. Latash, PhD, is a professor of kinesiology at Penn State University. Since the 1970s he has worked extensively in the areas of normal and disordered motor control. He is the author of Neurophysiological Basis of Movement and Control of Human Movement and the editor of Progress in Motor Control , volume 1, and the journal Motor Control . He also translated Bernstein's classic On Dexterity and Its Development in 1996. He has written more than 100 papers published in refereed journals.

Dr. Latash was an assistant professor and associate professor in the department of physiology and the department of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Rush Medical College in Chicago, Illinois.

He earned a master's degree in physics of living systems from the Moscow Physico-Technical Institute in 1976 and a PhD in physiology from Rush University in 1989. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience and the American Society of Biomechanics.

Vladimir M. Zatsiorsky, PhD, is an expert in the biomechanics of human motion. He has been a professor in the department of kinesiology at Penn State University since 1991 and is the director of the university's biomechanics laboratory. Before to coming to North America in 1990, Dr. Zatsiorsky served as professor and chair of the department of biomechanics at the Central Institute of Physical Culture in Moscow. He has received several awards for his achievements, including the Geoffrey Dyson Award from the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport (the society's highest honor).

Dr. Zatsiorsky has authored or co-authored more than 250 scientific papers. He has also authored or co-authored 11 books on various aspects of biomechanics that have been published in English, Russian, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Polish, Romanian, Czech, Serbo-Croation, and Bulgarian. His latest books are Science and Practice of Strength Training (1995), Kinematics of Human Motion (1997), and Biomechanics in Sport (2000, editor).
