When two adjacent fingers are crossed over each other and two tactile stimuli are touched to the two crossed fingertips, the two stimuli are perceived to be inverted in space. This phenomenon of tactile reversal was used in the present work to study the sensorimotor transformation occurring in goal directed motor behavior. When the subjects had to perform a movement toward a tactile stimulus (target) in tactile reversal conditions, the stimulus directed movements were performed wrongly, that is… CONTINUE READING
