Hemiparetic subjects present with movement deficits including weakness, spasticity and an inability to isolate movement to one or a few joints. Voluntary attempts to move a single joint often result in excessive motion at adjacent joints. We investigated whether the inability to individuate joint movements is associated with deficits in functional reaching. Controls and hemiparetic subjects performed two different reaching movements and three individuated arm movements, all in the parasagittal… CONTINUE READING
