When we reach for an object, we have to decide which arm to use and the direction in which to move. According to the established view, this is voluntarily controlled and programmed in advance in time-consuming and elaborate computations. Here, we systematically tested the motor strategy used by cats, monkeys, and humans when catching an object moving at high velocity to the left or right. In all species, targets moving to the right selectively initiated movement of the right forelimb and vice… CONTINUE READING
