Hierarchical control of static prehension: II. Multi-digit synergies

  title={Hierarchical control of static prehension: II. Multi-digit synergies},
  author={Stacey L Gorniak and Vladimir M. Zatsiorsky and Mark L. Latash},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
The purpose of this study was to explore the ability of the central nervous system (CNS) to organize synergies at two levels of a hypothetical control hierarchy involved in two-hand multi-finger prehension tasks with one or more persons participating in the task together. At the higher level of the hierarchy, the total force and moment of force produced on an object are distributed between the thumb and the virtual finger (an imagined finger with mechanical output equal to the involved fingers… CONTINUE READING
