Special issue in memory of Prof. Michael Turvey
The goal of this special issue is to make a tribute to Professor Michael Turvey (February 14th, 1941 – August 12th, 2023). Through the reflections of esteemed colleagues and former students gathered in this Special Issue of the Brazilian Journal of Motor Behavior, we gain insights into the profound influence of Michael Turvey, both professionally and personally. In the first part, five well-established scholars and Michael Turvey’s colleagues tell us about his impact on the field of motor behavior and beyond. Some also include the influence that Michael Turvey had in their careers. In the second part, four former Ph.D. students of the Center for the Ecological Study of Perception & Action (CESPA) tell us about the experience of being Michael Turvey’s student.
