Robotic devices are helping shed light on human motor control in health and injury. By using robots to apply novel force fields to the arm, investigators are gaining insight into how the nervous system models its external dynamic environment. The nervous system builds internal models gradually by experience and uses them in combination with impedance and feedback control strategies. Internal models are robust to environmental and neural noise, generalized across space, implemented in multiple brain regions, and developed in childhood. Robots are also being used to assist in repetitive movement practice following neurologic injury, providing insight into movement recovery. Robots can haptically assess sensorimotor performance, administer training, quantify amount of training, and improve motor recovery. In addition to providinginsightintomotorcontrol,roboticparadigmsmayeventuallyenhancemotor learning and rehabilitation beyond the levels possible with conventional training techniques.

Journal of Industrial Electronics and Applications is using online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems of SciTechnol for quality and quick review processing.Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publication process. Publishers can see what manuscripts are in the pipeline awaiting publication. Email is sent automatically to appropriate parties when significant events occur.

Submit manuscripts at or an e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at
