It has been proposed that the two hands play different roles during bimanual object interaction. The right hand takes on an explorative, highly precise, manipulative role while the left hand supports and stabilizes the object. Does this division of labour influence hand use during visually guided grasping? Three experiments were designed to address this question: right-handed individuals put together 3D models using big or small building blocks scattered across a tabletop. Participants were… CONTINUE READING
