Preparatory States & Processes: Proceedings of the Franco-American Conference, Ann Arbor, Michigan, August, 1982

By Sylvan Kornblum; Jean Requin | Go to book overview

the total length of the trajectory enters into the specification of the individual velocity gain factors is a coupling factor between the subunits of the movement. The result then suggests that the strength of this coupling can be modulated by idiosyncratic and/or contextual circumstances.


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
