2019 biorxiv/medrxiv   pre-print
In this work, we developed a computational framework to estimate the spatiotemporal patterns of proprioceptive inputs to the cervical spinal cord during three-dimensional arm movements in monkeys.  ...  Proprioceptive feedback is a critical component of voluntary movement planning and execution.  ...  In particular, upper arm muscles are activated in the first part of the reaching phase to lift the arm and initiate the whole limb movement.  ...

Postural effects on arm movement variability are idiosyncratic and feedback-dependent [article]

Preyaporn Phataraphruk, Qasim Rahman, Kishor Lakshminarayanan, Mitchell Fruchtman, Christopher Buneo
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
Reaching movements are subject to noise arising during the sensing, planning and execution phases of movement production, which contributes to movement variability.  ...  The results emphasize the role of factors other than noise (i.e. biomechanics and suboptimal sensorimotor integration) in constraining patterns of movement variability in 3D space.  ...  These differences were largest during the terminal phases of movement for reaches made in the NV condition.  ...

J. P. Gallivan, D. A. McLean, K. F. Valyear, C. E. Pettypiece, J. C. Culham
2011 Journal of Neuroscience  
Here we demonstrate using functional MRI (fMRI) pattern recognition techniques that we can also decode movement intentions from human brain signals, specifically object-directed grasp and reach movements  ...  These findings offer new insights into the detailed movement information contained in human preparatory brain activity and advance our present understanding of sensorimotor planning processes through a  ...  Principal among these has been the ability to predict or decode upcoming sensorimotor behaviors (such as movements of the arm or eyes) based on changes in parieto-frontal neural activity that precede movement  ...

Motor planning brings human primary somatosensory cortex into movement-specific preparatory states [article]

Giacomo Ariani, J. Andrew Pruszynski, Jörn Diedrichsen
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
Yet, the neural processes that occur in human primary motor and somatosensory cortex during planning, and how they relate to those during movement execution, remain poorly understood.  ...  Motor planning plays a critical role in producing fast and accurate movement.  ...  While the neuronal correlates of movement planning have largely been studied in non-human primates using upper limb movements, such as reaching and grasping, motor planning also plays a crucial role in  ...

Human-Like Arm Motion Generation: A Review

Gianpaolo Gulletta, Wolfram Erlhagen, Estela Bicho
2020 Robotics  
This paper presents a literature review of the most recent research on the generation of human-like arm movements in humanoid and manipulation robotic systems.  ...  Results show that there is a strong focus on the generation of single-arm reaching movements and biomimetic-based methods.  ...  Additionally, patterns on human movements have been principally analyzed by considering the hand motion, which reflects properties on the end-effector trajectory in robotics.  ...

2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
Promising neurotechnologies stimulating muscles to bypass the injury enabled grasping in humans with SCI but failed to sustain whole arm functional movements that are necessary for daily living activities  ...  We then triggered these bursts using movement-related intracortical signals, which enabled monkeys with arm motor deficits to perform an unconstrained, three-dimensional reach and grasp task.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Jacques Maillard and Laurent Bossy for the care provided to the animals, Dr Eric Schmidlin and Simon Borgognon for their help with anaesthesia and surgery  ...

Inter-joint coupling and joint angle synergies of human catching movements

Till Bockemühl, Nikolaus F. Troje, Volker Dürr
2010 Human Movement Science  
In reaching movements of the human arm, redundancy occurs at the kinematic level because there are an unlimited number of arm postures for each position of the hand.  ...  When we pooled complete sets of movements, three PCs, the theoretical minimum for reaching in 3D space, were sufficient to explain 80% of the data's variance.  ...  In the context of human arm movements, PCA has been applied to the analysis of rhythmic juggling movements (Post, Daffertshofer, & Beek, 2000) , object retrieval (Sabatini, 2002) , and whole body reaching  ...
