Organization of a Simple Two-Joint Synergy in Individuals with Down Syndrome.
Aruin, Alexander S.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v101 n3 p256-68 Nov 1996
Six adults with Down syndrome performed discrete elbow or wrist, flexion or extension movements in a sagittal plane, moving one of the joints as fast as possible. The subjects demonstrated simultaneous bursts of activity in the flexor and extensor muscles controlling both joints. This adaptive feature may reflect a general tendency of these persons to trade efficacy for safety. (Author/CR)
