Grasping occluded targets: investigating the influence of target visibility, allocentric cue presence, and direction of motion on gaze and grasp accuracy

Grasping occluded targets: investigating the influence of target visibility, allocentric cue... Participants executed right-handed reach-to-grasp movements toward horizontally translating targets. Visual feedback of the target when reaching, as well as the presence of additional cues placed above and below the target’s path, was manipulated. Comparison of average fixations at reach onset and at the time of the grasp suggested that participants accurately extrapolated the occluded target’s motion prior to reach onset, but not after the reach had been initiated, resulting in inaccurate grasp placements. Final gaze and grasp positions were more accurate when reaching for leftward moving targets, suggesting individuals use different grasp strategies when reaching for targets traveling away from the reaching hand. Additional cue presence appeared to impair participants’ ability to extrapolate the disappeared target’s motion, and caused grasps for occluded targets to be less accurate. Novel information is provided about the eye-hand strategies used when reaching for moving targets in unpredictable visual conditions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experimental Brain Research Springer Journals
