Fast manual responses to visual perturbations
E Brenner, J Smeets
If a target is displaced while we move our hand toward it, it takes less than 150 ms for our movement to adjust to the new position. However, manual responses are only that fast under certain conditions. Is it essential that the hand itself is moving to the target? When using tools we often have to move our hand to a position that is some distance away from the target. This is, for instance, the case when we use a computer mouse.
Subjects sat in front of a computer screen and moved the mouse
