A Change in the Central Control of Sensorimotor Coordination'


In characterizing the changes that occur in sensorimotor coordination after viewing the prism-displaced image of the hand, four types of explanation can be advanced: visual, proprioceptive, motor, and sensorimotor. Each one predicts different consequences on different tests of coordination: reaching for visual targets, orienting head to hand, orienting eye to hand, and repositioning the hand in a learned posture. The results of four experiments using these tests are consistent only with the sensorimotor explanation. They imply a change in the control and assessment of coincidence between the direction indicated by the exposed arm and that of either a sensed external object or other body part.
