Semi-natural grasslands with grazing management are characterized by high fine-scale species richness and have a high conservation value. The fact that fine-scale surveys of grassland plant communities are time-consuming may limit the spatial extent of ground-based diversity surveys. Remote sensing tools have the potential to support field-based sampling(More)
The "raspberry task" represents a precision grip task that requires continuous adjustment of grip and pull forces. During this task subjects grip a specialized grip rod and have to increase the pull force linearly while the rod is locked. The aim of this study was to determine whether an associated, initially neutral cue is able to evoke pull-force changes(More)
This study addresses the influence of the cerebellum on the performance of an isometric precision grip task. For the task, in which the process of “picking a raspberry” is simulated, grip force and pull force had to be increased linearly for a duration of 1–5 s (pull phase) to accomplish the task skillfully. The performance of 11 patients suffering from(More)
The “raspberry task” represents a precision grip task that requires continuous adjustment of grip forces and pull forces. During this task, subjects use a specialised grip rod and have to increase the pull force linearly while the rod is locked. The positions of the fingers are unrestrained and freely selectable. From the finger positions and the geometry(More)
