We investigated the extent to which the right hemisphere is involved in the control of the ipsilateral hand by analysing the kinematics of right-hand prehension in right brain-damaged (RBD) patients. We required patients to grasp one of five possible objects, equally-sized and distributed over a 40 degrees wide workspace. With the purpose of investigating the right hemisphere contribution to the on-line visuo-motor control, we also assessed patients' ability to correct their movement "in-flight… CONTINUE READING
