Evidence of a limited visuo-motor memory used in programming wrist movements

Human subjects can pre-program movements on the basis of visual cues. Experience in a particular task leads to the storage of appropriate control parameters which are used in programming subsequent movements, via a short-term motor memory. The form, duration and usage of this memory are, however, uncertain. Repetitive wrist flexion and extension movements were measured in four subjects. Three were neurologically normal men; the fourth subject had a peripheral large-fibre sensory neuropathy… CONTINUE READING
