This study examined the impact of movement scale and joint set on the trajectories of rapid pointing movement made with a mouse. Participants manipulated a mouse to point a cursor to targets on a display of varying size and distance. The mouse movement was scaled independently of the display size by varying the control gain. Large-scale movements involving proximal joints (forearm) yielded longer movement times than small-scale movements involving distal joints (wrist, fingers). However… CONTINUE READING
