In studies of rhythmic coordination, where sensory information is often generated by an auditory stimulus, spatial and temporal variability are known to decrease at points in the movement cycle coincident with the stimulus, a phenomenon known as anchoring (Byblow et al. 1994). Here we hypothesize that the role of anchoring may be to globally stabilize(More)
Protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) play a critical role in the manifestation of cancer cell properties, and respective signaling mechanisms have been studied extensively on immortalized tumor cells. To characterize and analyze commonly used cancer cell lines with regard to variations in the primary structure of all expressed PTKs, we conducted a cDNA-based(More)
In human coordination studies information from the environment may not only pace rhythmic behavior, but also contribute to the observed dynamics, e.g. aphenomenon known as anchoring in the literature. For the paradigmatic caseof bimanual coordination we study these contributions mathematically and develop a model of the interaction between the limb's(More)
Humans are often faced with tasks that require stabilizing inherently unstable situations. The authors explored the dynamics of human functional stabilization by having participants continually balance a pole until a minimum time criterion was reached. Conditions were manipulated with respect to geometry, mass, and characteristic "fall time" of the pole.(More)
