Title:
A bang-bang control model predicts the triphasic muscles activity during hand reaching 
Abstract:
There are numerous ways to reach for an apple hanging from a tree. Yet, our motor system uses a specific muscle activity pattern that features activity bursts and silent periods. We suggest that these bursts are an evidence against the common view that the brain controls the commands to the muscles in a smooth continuous manner. Instead, we propose a model in which a motor plan is transformed into a piecewise-constant control signal that is low-pass filtered and transmitted to the muscles with d...    »
