The adaptation of the grip forces to the frictional condition between the digits and an object relies on feedforward sensorimotor mechanisms that use tactile afferent input to intermittently update a sensorimotor memory that controls the force coordination, i.e., the ratio between grip force (normal to the grip surface) and load force (tangential to the grip surface). The present study addressed the development of these mechanisms. Eighty-nine children and 15 adults lifted an instrumented… CONTINUE READING
