Asymmetric generalization in adaptation to target displacement errors Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Adaptation is crucial for the sensorimotor system to compensate systematic changes in the environment. In visuomotor tasks, artificially perturbed visual feedback about hand position leads to movement adaptation, which could be driven by prediction errors about sensory hand representations or the induced target error. While the first is mostly believed to be decisive for adaptation, we here demonstrate and characterize reach adaptation in a novel visuomotor task based on target error alone. A sudden target …
