In experiment 1 participants reached and grasped equal green stalks of a green apple and a red strawberry. Stability of the two fruits was equalised by fixing the fruits on the table plane where they were reached for and grasped. The results confirmed that finger shaping was influenced by the size of the fruit body (Gentilucci 2002). Finger shaping was larger when grasping the apple stalk than the strawberry stalk. In addition, deceleration phase lengthened when reaching to grasp the… CONTINUE READING
