A minimum energy cost hypothesis for human arm trajectories

Abstract

 Many tasks require the arm to move from its initial position to a specified target position, but leave us free to choose the trajectory between them. This paper presents and tests the hypothesis that trajectories are chosen to minimize metabolic energy costs. Costs are calculated for the range of possible trajectories, for movements between the end points… (More)
