Finger control in the tripod grasp

  title={Finger control in the tripod grasp},
  author={Maurizio Gentilucci and Luana Caselli and Claudio Secchi},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
The present study aimed to determine whether grasping is based on either (1) synchronous finger movements producing stereotyped types of grasp, or (2) independently controlled finger movements producing variable final finger postures. Participants reached for and grasped sphere-shaped objects of three sizes. They were allowed to select three different grasp configurations: a "pinch" grip (thumb and index finger), a "middle" grip (thumb and middle finger) and a "tripod" grip (thumb and index… CONTINUE READING
