This paper describes how a synergy made up of a pair of agonist and antagonist systems involved in the production of a rapid movement can control movement time. A quadratic law is derived to predict the movement time as a function of the various parameters describing the neuromuscular synergy. Conditions for a simplified description of the process, using a power law, are also presented. It is predicted that movement time can be controlled at the input level by the ratio of the agonist to… CONTINUE READING
