Sample text

The problem is that because the nervous system has no representation of the relation between the kinematics and the dynamics, it has no way of relating the errors, which are kinematic (deviations from planned trajectories), to the dynamics (the pattern of forces that generated the trajectory). Thus, it cannot use observed trajectory errors to make goal-directed changes in the planning process; it can only proceed by random trial and error. 2. Adaptation to Artificially Manipulated Dynamics Although roboticists have not yet made computer-controlled robots that can reach and wipe as well as a frog can, they have nonetheless made enough progress to permit highly instructive experimental manipulations of the forces that a human arm encounters during a reach.

By contrast, the axes of the integrator’s coordinates are horizontal and vertical. This means that the horizontal and vertical-torsional pulses that cause saccadic eye movements must be computed in such a way as to maintain the eye in the zerotorsion positions demanded by Donders’ law. To do this, the circuitry that generates these motor pulses must take into account the position of the eye at the start of the saccade. , 10Њ to the right and 5Њ up) differs depending on the starting position of the eye.

However, recent direct measurements of the trajectory of the equilibrium point during reaching movements show that this trajectory is much less smooth than the actual trajectory of the hand (Gomi & Kawato, 1996). That is, if the hand and arm had no mass—and hence, were always at the equilibrium point of the force field throughout the movement—their movements would be much less smooth than they actually are; the velocity profile instead of being a smooth bell shape, would have multiple peaks. The equilibrium-point hypothesis cannot readily explain the fact that the kinematics of reaching movements are invariant under substantial changes in speed and substantial changes in load (the weight in the hand).
