An asymmetric bimanual task was investigated in which participants performed a rhythmic movement with their dominant arm and initiated a second movement with their nondominant arm at a random phase of the continued oscillations. The objective was to examine whether different constraints existed between rhythmic and discrete movements and, more generally, whether rhythmic and discrete movements can be regarded as two different movement primitives. Participants performed rhythmic forearm… CONTINUE READING
