The symmetrical dynamics of 1∶1 rhythmic bimanual coordination may be specified by an order parameter equation involving the relative phase between rhythmic components, and an interlimb coupling which determines the relative attractiveness of in-phase and anti-phase patterns. Symmetry breaking of these dynamics can occur via the difference in the natural frequencies, Δω, of the left and right rhythmic components, or by the intrinsic asymmetrical dynamics of the body. The latter is captured by… CONTINUE READING
