    N E Berthier
    Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts, Amherst 01003, USA
    Exp Brain Res 127:259-69. 1999
    ..The proximodistal direction of maturation of the neural and muscular systems appears to restrict arm and hand movement in a way that simplifies learning to reach...
  3. ncbi request reprint Approximate optimal control as a model for motor learning
    Neil E Berthier
    Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Amherst, MA 01003, USA
    Psychol Rev 112:329-46. 2005
    ..The authors model the development of reaching and investigate N. Bernstein's (1967) hypotheses about early motor learning. Simulations show the course of learning as well as model the kinematics of reaching by a dynamical arm...

    N E Berthier
    Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 01003, USA
    Dev Psychol 36:394-401. 2000
    ..The results are consistent with the Piagetian view that the ability to use representations to guide action develops slowly over the first years of life...

    Neil E Berthier
    University of Massachusetts Amherst, Saint Michael s College, MA, USA
    Infant Behav Dev 33:555-66. 2010
    ..At younger ages reaches are corrected on the basis of proprioceptive information and sight of the target object...
  6. ncbi request reprint Planning of reach-and-grasp movements: effects of validity and type of object information
    L D Loukopoulos
    Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA, USA
    J Mot Behav 33:255-64. 2001
    ..The authors suggest that the processes involved in motor planning before execution are primarily concerned with the geometric aspects of the upcoming movement but not with the temporal details of its execution...

    Renee L Carrico
    Saint Michael s College, Box 399, Colchester, VT 05439, USA
    Infant Behav Dev 31:62-70. 2008
    ..Furthermore, these kinematic alterations are similar to those seen in adults, suggesting that visual guidance may become more important over the course of development, as infants engage in increasingly higher precision tasks...
  8. ncbi request reprint Attention during looking and reaching as assessed by heart rate in 7(1/2)-month-old infants
    Laura P O'Sullivan
    Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Amherst, MA 01003, USA
    Dev Psychobiol 42:292-300. 2003
    ..We conclude that overt action itself does not prevent the autonomic and behavioral changes that are also seen in attention to simple visual displays and that attention is maintained throughout the act of reaching...
  9. ncbi request reprint The undershoot bias: learning to act optimally under uncertainty
    Sascha E Engelbrecht
    University of Massachusetts, Amherst 01003, USA
    Psychol Sci 14:257-61. 2003
    ..The results show that adults are sensitive to the stochastic structure of a task and naturally adjust the magnitude of an undershoot bias to the particular movement error of a task...

    Clay Mash
    Section on Child and Family Research, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development NICHD, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
    Dev Psychol 42:263-71. 2006
    ..Previous comparisons of looking versus reaching tested children's postdiction response to an object in an unexpected location, but these findings indicate that toddlers can predict where the object should be...
