Following earlier work by Mechsner et al. (Nature 414 (2001) 69), the purpose of this experiment was to determine the perceptual and motoric contributions to bimanual coordination. Twenty right-handed, healthy, young adults performed continuous, horizontal, linear movements of both upper limbs at frequencies of 1.5 and 2.0 Hz. The goal was to control the spatial-temporal displacement of two flags by coordinating upper limb movements in two perceptual conditions. In a congruent condition, the… Expand
The impact of perceptual, cognitive and motor factors on bimanual coordination
TLDR
Results demonstrate that constraints arise from target detection and trajectory planning processes that can occur prior to movement initiation as well as from inherent muscle properties that emerge during movement execution, and that the manifestation of these constraints can be significantly altered by the ability to visually monitor movement progress.

The relationship between visual orienting and interlimb synchrony in a patient with a superior parietal infarction: A case study
TLDR
Results suggest that parietal cortex plays an important role in the coordination of limb movements during performance of bimanual visuomotor tasks, and appears to involve orienting gaze or attention to the goals of each limb so that the nervous system can synchronize the activity of both limbs and thereby ensure successful task completion. Expand
Vision-to-event and movement-to-event coordination in an unimanual circling task
TLDR
In conclusion, vision-to-event coordination dominates unimanual action coordination, and the quality of performance is influenced by perceptual processes based on differential processing of the horizontal and vertical axis, and based on Gestalt principles. Expand
Using scanning trials to assess intrinsic coordination dynamics
TLDR
These findings clearly indicate that the perception-action system is fully capable of producing a wide range of bimanual coordination patterns and that the reason for the failure to produce these patterns in previous experiments reside in the perceptual information and attentional requirements typically found in experimental testing environments. Expand
Seeing or moving in parallel: the premotor cortex does both during bimanual coordination, while the cerebellum monitors the behavioral instability of symmetric movements
TLDR
The results indicate that separate areas within PMd and SMA are responsible for both perception and performance of ongoing movements and that the cerebellum supports symmetric movements by monitoring deviations from the stable coordination pattern. Expand
Rhythmical bimanual force production: homologous and non-homologous muscles
TLDR
The results indicated that participants were able to ‘tune-in’ a 1:2 coordination patterns using homologous (triceps muscles of the left and right limbs) and using non-homologous muscles (biceps left limb and triceps right limb) when provided Lissajous feedback. Expand
Neural predictors of motor control and impact of visuo‐proprioceptive information in youth
TLDR
The findings suggest that manual tracking performance in youth does not only rely on brain areas involved in sensorimotor processing, but also on prefrontal regions involved in attention and working memory. Expand

Cognitive constraints on motor imagery
TLDR
Cognitive coordination constraints are present in the motor imagery of fast (<1600 ms) bimanual movements and alternations between inhibition and execution may prolong the duration of motor imagery. Expand
The effect of visuo-motor transformations on hand-foot coordination: evidence in favor of the incongruency hypothesis.
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that the congruency between the performed pattern and the perceived visual feedback is the primary factor determining the (in)stability of hand-foot coordination patterns. Expand

Directional interference during bimanual coordination: is interlimb coupling mediated by afferent or efferent processes
TLDR
It is concluded that directional interference primarily emerges at the efferent level of movement planning and organization. Expand
Perceptual basis of bimanual coordination
TLDR
It is suggested that voluntary movements are organized by way of a representation of the perceptual goals, whereas the corresponding motor activity, of sometimes high complexity, is spontaneously and flexibly tuned in. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that perceptual transformations aid the production of more complex coordination patterns, thereby underscoring the importance of perception-action coupling in bimanual coordination. Expand

The study of these cognitive penetrations into action will narrow the brain-mind gap and will facilitate the development of a cognitive neuroscience perspective on bimanual movement control. Expand

TLDR
A distributed network that governs the processes of neural synchronization and desynchronization that underlie the rich variety of coordinated functions accounts for disruptions of interlimb coordination across various movement disorders. Expand
Effects of aging on automatic and effortful processes in bimanual coordination.
TLDR
Two experiments are reported that compared younger and older adults on their performance of two bimanual temporal coordination tasks at varying movement speeds, suggesting that relative age differences become magnified when effortful resources are required for motor performance. Expand

TLDR
The results demonstrated that when movements are performed in an appropriate mechanical context, inphase patterns of coordination are less stable than antiphase patterns. Expand

The present studies provide evidence for the existence of two basic coordinative constraints whose effects may be additive under certain conditions. Expand
Asymmetries in Coupling Dynamics of Perception and Action.
TLDR
The influence of information-based dynamics on coordination dynamics of rhythmic movement was examined with special reference to the expression of asymmetries, with the right hand-visual display system defined a more stable perception-action collective than the left, particularly when continuous visual information was available.

TLDR
Evidence is interpreted with reference to evidence that the supplementary motor area mediates descending input to the upper limbs during disparate bimanual actions, but not during symmetric actions. Expand
