A series of three experiments was designed to investigate the control processes involved in multisegmental coordination. Each of the experiments required subjects to perform a prehension task either: a) with the assistance of torso flexion, or b) while walking. In Experiment 1, we had subjects grasp, transport, and set down a cup of water while walking past a table. The results of Experiment 1 suggested subjects adjusted their gait patterns both at the time of cup lift and cup replacement… CONTINUE READING
