Dear subscribers,

Season's greeting to you.

In discussing the hyposensitivity phenomenon of skeletal muscle (i.e., the
fact that highly coordinated movements can still occur despite comparatively
chaotic neural inputs), Hatze (2000, Biological Cybernetics, 82, 133-141)
stated that the results of his simulations were supported by "numerous
empirical studies" that had revealed that iterative performance of the same
stereotyped motion was underpinned by considerably varying muscle activation
patterns. As Hatze didn't provide any references for these empirical
studies, I was wondering whether any subscribers could?

Many thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,


Paul Glazier
