In most studies examining pattern switching in biological coordination, emphasis is placed on identifying the mechanisms underlying bifurcations in an already active set of components. Less well understood are the processes by which quiescent degrees of freedom (df) are recruited and active df suppressed. To examine such behavior, we studied four bimanual and two unimanual coordination patterns. Subjects produced the patterns in time with an auditory metronome whose frequency increased from 1.5… CONTINUE READING
