Importance of body sway velocity information in controlling ankle extensor activities during quiet stance.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the actual postural control system during quiet stance adopts a control strategy that relies notably on velocity information and that such a controller can modulate muscle activity in anticipatory manner without using a feed-forward mechanism. Expand
Distinct Motor Plans Form and Retrieve Distinct Motor Memories for Physically Identical Movements
TLDR
A novel visuomotor task is used to demonstrate that multiple motor memories can be learned and flexibly retrieved, even for physically identical movements, according to distinct motor plans in a visual space. Expand
Specific tension of elbow flexor and extensor muscles based on magnetic resonance imaging
TLDR
Specific tension related to the estimated velocity of muscle fibres were similar for elbow flexors and extensors, suggesting that the capacity of tension development is analogous between two muscle groups. Expand
Reciprocal angular acceleration of the ankle and hip joints during quiet standing in humans
TLDR
The angular displacement, velocity, and acceleration of the hip were found to be significantly greater than those of the ankle, confirming that hip-joint motion cannot be ignored, even during quiet standing. Expand
The “Cutaneous Rabbit” Hopping out of the Body
TLDR
It is shown that the cutaneous rabbit can “hop out of the body” onto an external object held by the subject, suggesting that thecutaneous rabbit effect involves not only the intrinsic somatotopic representation but also the representation of the extended body schema that results from body–object interactions.

Testing Bayesian models of human coincidence timing.
TLDR
This study tested whether Bayesian integration is also implemented while performing a coincidence-timing type of sensorimotor task by manipulating the trial-by-trial variability (i.e., the prior distribution) of the target timing. Expand
Limited transfer of learning between unimanual and bimanual skills within the same limb
TLDR
Results suggest partial, but not complete, overlap in the learning processes involved in the acquisition of unimanual and bimanual skills. Expand
Adaptation to Visual Feedback Delay Influences Visuomotor Learning
TLDR
The data indicate the importance of appropriate temporal associations between motor commands and sensory feedback in visuomotor learning and suggest that the brain is able to account for such temporal associations in a flexible manner. Expand
Asymmetric Transfer of Visuomotor Learning between Discrete and Rhythmic Movements
TLDR
Behavioral evidence is provided that different neuronal control processes are involved in the two types of movements and that discrete control processes contribute to the generation of the first cycle of the rhythmic movement. Expand
Muscle activity determined by cosine tuning with a nontrivial preferred direction during isometric force exertion by lower limb.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the observed shift from the MD to the PD is plausible in the configuration of the musculo-skeletal system and that the experimental results are likely to be explained by the CNS process to minimize the variability of the endpoint force vector under the existence of signal-dependent noise.
