Humans are able to learn tool-handling tasks, such as carving, demonstrating their competency to make and vary the direction of movements in unstable environments. It has been shown that when a single reaching movement is repeated in unstable dynamics, the central nervous system (CNS) learns an impedance internal model to compensate for the environment instability. However, there is still no explanation for how humans can learn to move in various directions in such environments. In this study, we investigated whether and how humans compensate for instability while learning two different reaching movements simultaneously. Results show that when performing movements in two different directions, separated by a 35 degrees angle, the CNS was able to compensate for the unstable dynamics. After adaptation, the force was found to be similar to the free movement condition, but stiffness increased in the direction of instability, specifically for each direction of movement. Our findings suggest that the CNS either learned an internal model generalizing over different movements, or alternatively that it was able to switch between specific models acquired simultaneously.

Background. When learning to perform a novel sensorimotor task, humans integrate multi-modal sensory feedback such asvision and proprioception in order to make the appropriate adjustments to successfully complete the task. Sensory feedback isused both during movement to control and correct the current movement, and to update the feed-forward motor commandfor subsequent movements. Previous work has shown that adaptation to stable dynamics is possible without visual feedback.However, it is not clear to what degree visual information during movement contributes to this learning or whether it isessential to the development of an internal model or impedance controller. Methodology/Principle Findings. We examinedthe effects of the removal of visual feedback during movement on the learning of both stable and unstable dynamics incomparison with the case when both vision and proprioception are available. Subjects were able to learn to make smoothmovements in both types of novel dynamics after learning with or without visual feedback. By examining the endpointstiffness and force after learning it could be shown that subjects adapted to both types of dynamics in the same way whetherthey were provided with visual feedback of their trajectory or not. The main effects of visual feedback were to increase thesuccess rate of movements, slightly straighten the path, and significantly reduce variability near the end of the movement.Conclusions/Significance. These findings suggest that visual feedback of the hand during movement is not necessary for theadaptation to either stable or unstable novel dynamics. Instead vision appears to be used to fine-tune corrections of handtrajectory at the end of reaching movements.

This paper describes a novel two-degree-of-freedom robotic interface to train opening/closing of the hand and knob manipulation. The mechanical design, based on two parallelogram structures holding an exchangeable button, offers the possibility to adapt the interface to various hand sizes and finger orientations, as well as to right-handed or left-handed subjects. The interaction with the subject is measured by means of position encoders and four force sensors located close to the output measuring grasping and insertion forces. Various knobs can be mounted on the interface, including a cone mechanism to train a complete opening movement from a strongly contracted and closed hand to a large opened position. We describe the design based on measured biomechanics, the redundant safety mechanisms as well as the actuation and control architecture. Preliminary experiments show the performance of this interface and some of the possibilities it offers for the rehabilitation of hand function.
