  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
Insight into the functional neural substrates associated with the control of goal-directed purposive movements can be obtained through the study of the performance of individuals with brain damage. The control of rapid reciprocal aiming was investigated by comparing ipsilateral limb performance of subjects with unilateral brain damage to that of controls performing with the same limb. Thirty right-hand-dominant individuals, ten with right hemisphere stroke, ten with left hemisphere stroke, and… CONTINUE READING
