Decades of laboratory research in handwriting have given us the tools necessary to elucidate normal and pathological processes underlying handwriting production. Unfortunately, these principles are rarely incorporated into modern research on neurogical disease document examination. The overarching goal of this book is to educate the reader on the relevant neuroscientific principles underlying normal and pathological hand motor control and handwriting and to bridge the gap between theory and practice with examples from recent and ongoing laboratory studies. Once we hope the book will have wide appeal to the researchers and educators in the filds of motor control and clinical neuroscience. Secondly this book raises new questions and opens new doors to the scientific process of signature and handwriting authentication.
This is my sincere gratitude to my research guide Prof.Dr. Jacob G. Dubroff for his constant support, guidance and encouragement throughout the project and without whose help the completion of this book would have been difficult. His enthusiasm for the subject has been a great source of inspiration for me. I thank Dr. Johanna Bell, University of London State for healthy criticism and stimulating conversation in the middle of the research work. Also I want to thank Prof. Christopher Evans for his contribution to transferred handwriting in Neurology area, his valuable suggestions, his encouragement in doing this research on handwriting in Edinburgh University. I thank Prof.Dr.Ülkü Çelik Şavk and Dr. Oxana Dorr for their encouragement in doing this research in computational neuroscience.
I am grateful to my parents Suna & Sabri for their patience and all of their helps in my research process, support and encouragement. I am glad to thank my brother İsmail and also my sisters Merve and Kevser. Again I would like to thank them for their support, their believe and encouragement. I really feel very lucky myself because of their existence in my life.
