The Tendon Network of the Fingers Performs Anatomical Computation at a Macroscopic Scale


Current thinking attributes information processing for neuromuscular control exclusively to the nervous system. Our cadaveric experiments and computer simulations show, however, that the tendon network of the fingers performs logic computation to preferentially change torque production capabilities. How this tendon network propagates tension to enable… (More)
