Abstract

LATASH, M.L., J.P. SCHOLZ, and G. SCHÖNER. Motor control strategies revealed in the structure of motor variability. Exerc. Sport Sci. Rev., Vol. 30, No. 1, pp 26–31, 2002. We describe an uncontrolled manifold hypothesis, which suggests a particular solution for the notorious problem of motor redundancy. A body of recent experiments supports the uncontrolled manifold hypothesis and shows its ability to discover biological strategies of the coordination of apparently redundant motor systems. The hypothesis and associated computational apparatus have great potential for application in the areas of motor rehabilitation and motor skill acquisition.
