We previously demonstrated that lateralization in the neural control of predictive and impedance mechanisms is reflected by interlimb differences in control of bilateral tasks. Aging has been shown...

Abstract Objective To demonstrate the feasibility of algorithmic prediction utilizing a model of baseline arm movement, genetic factors, demographic characteristics, and multi-modal assessment of the structure and function of motor pathways. To identify prognostic factors and the biological substrate for reductions in arm impairment in response to repetitive task practice. Design This prospective single-group interventional study seeks to predict response to a repetitive task practice program us...

Abstract Objective The now standard cortical stimulation approach of inhibiting contralesional primary motor cortex (cM1) disrupts bimanual coordination while facilitating ipsilesional M1 (iM1) fails to enhance paretic arm function, in severely impaired individuals. We propose an alternative target, enhancing contralesional dorsal premotor cortex (cPMd) to improve bimanual coordination and compare its effects to iM1. Methods Fourteen participants with stroke received 5-Hz repetitive transcranial...

Motor development research has had a rich history over the 20th century with a wide array of scientists contributing to a broad and deep body of literature. Just like the process of development, progress within the field has been non-linear, with rapid periods of growth occurring after the publication of key research articles that changed how we conceptualized and explored motor development. These publications provided new ways to consider developmental issues and, as a result, ignited change in...

Two contrasting views of handedness can be described as 1) complementary dominance, in which each hemisphere is specialized for different aspects of motor control, and 2) global dominance, in which the hemisphere contralateral to the dominant arm is specialized for all aspects of motor control. The present study sought to determine which motor lateralization hypothesis best predicts motor performance during common bilateral task of stabilizing an object (e.g. bread) with one hand while applying ...

Coordinating bimanual movements is essential for everyday activities. Two common types of bimanual tasks are common goal, where two arms share a united goal, and dual goal, which involves independent goals for each arm. Here, we examine how the neural control mechanisms differ between these two types of bimanual tasks. Ten non-disabled individuals performed isometric force tasks of the elbow at 10% of their maximal voluntary force in both bimanual common and dual goals as well as unimanual condi...

AbstractPurpose: To investigate the effectiveness and feasibility of Kinect-based upper extremity rehabilitation on functional performance in chronic stroke survivors. Methods: This was a single cohort pre-post test study. Participants (N = 10; mean age = 62.5 ± 9.06) engaged in Kinect-based training three times a week for four to five weeks in a university laboratory. To simulate a clinic to home transfer condition, individualized guidance was given to participants at the initial three sessions...

Abstract In this chapter, we ask two questions. First, can the study of the perception–action system across time offer a useful model for understanding motor development? Second, can the study of the perception–action system in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) inform our understanding of atypical as well as typical motor development? We begin by describing the dynamical systems perspective and a control-theoretic approach that together provide the conceptual framework for ...
