The control of reaching movements by young infants
Infant reaching movements have tortuous handpaths and multipeaked speed curves. It has been hypothesised that these movements comprise sequences of ballistic motor units whose boundaries are marked by troughs in the speed-time curve. Error correction, if any, is assumed to take place between and not within these movement units. This hypothesis was investigated in this study. Samples of reaches were obtained from groups of infants aged 4.5, 6 and 7.5 months as split-screen video recordings,...[Show more]
