Weiwei Wan and Kensuke Harada and Fumio Kanehiro
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The planner is able to plan both single and dual arm manipulation. It could also automatically determine whether to use a single arm, dual arms, or their combinations to finish given tasks.  ...  The proposed algorithm could plan single and dual arm manipulation sequences to solve the problems.  ...  Compared to the single-arm regrasp planner and dual-arm handover planner, the newly proposed planner does preparatory manipulation planning using automatically determined single and dual arms.  ...

Physiological Markers of Motor Inhibition during Human Behavior

Julie Duque, Ian Greenhouse, Ludovica Labruna, Richard B. Ivry
2017 Trends in Neurosciences  
As such, many daily life situations demand that human beings refrain from acting in an automatic, stimulus-driven manner, subjugate internal desires that interfere with long-term plans (e.g. eating unhealthy  ...  Here, we review the evidence for motor inhibition during action stopping and action preparation, focusing on studies that have used TMS to monitor changes in the excitability of the corticospinal pathway  ...  We are thankful to Julien Grandjean and Emmanuelle Wilhelm for their valuable comments on an earlier version of the manuscript.  ...

P3 event-related brain potential reflects allocation and use of central processing capacity in language production

Natalia Shitova, Ardi Roelofs, Caitlin Coughler, Herbert Schriefers
2017 Neuropsychologia  
Capacity allocation was manipulated by complexity, and capacity use by switching. Response time (RT) was longer for complex than for simple trials.  ...  We investigated allocation and use of central processing capacity in a spoken phrase production task: Participants switched every second trial between describing pictures using noun phrases with one adjective  ...  RTs were measured semi-automatically using PRAAT (Boersma, 2002) .  ...
