We investigated motor–respiratory coordination (MRC) in visually guided forearm tracking movements focusing on two main questions: (1) Does attentional demand, training or complexity of the tracking task have an effect on the degree of MRC? (2) Does MRC impair the precision of those movements? We hypothesized that (1) enhanced attention to the tracking task(More)
The coordination between breathing and other motor activities usually implies that the respiratory rhythm has become entrained by the rhythm of the simultaneous movement. Our hypothesis was that by increasing the respiratory drive, e.g. by hypercapnia, we would be able to reduce the subordination of breathing to other movements and, on the other hand,(More)
