Trajectories of arm movement during a pointing task were shown to be unaffected by large loads. Moreover, when the effective arm length was changed, the target was still approached along a direct trajectory. It is concluded that: (1) compensation for load occurs automatically without affecting those constraints on the basis of which movements are organized; (2) that the effective lengths of body segments as well as joint angles constitute variables utilized in the organization of trajectories.

Abstract

Trajectories of arm movement during a pointing task were shown to be unaffected by large loads. Moreover, when the effective arm length was changed, the target was still approached along a direct trajectory. It is concluded that: (1) compensation for load occurs automatically without affecting those constraints on the basis of which movements are organized; (2) that the effective lengths of body segments as well as joint angles constitute variables utilized in the organization of trajectories.
