    Multi-limb motor skills, such as swimming and rowing, often involve isolated practice of each limb (unimanual) followed by practice with both limbs together (bimanual). We recently demonstrated that learning a novel load during unimanual reaching is partially, but not completely transferred to...

    Background: Humans are capable of fast adaptation to new unknown dynamics that affect their movements. Such motor learning is also believed to be an important part of motor rehabilitation. Bimanual training can improve post-stroke rehabilitation outcome and is associated with interlimb...

    Although a limb's motion appears to be similar across unimanual and bimanual movements, here we demonstrate partial, but not complete, transfer of learning across these behavioral contexts, hidden learning that remains intact (but invisible) until the original context is again encountered, and...

    Unimanual and bimanual cyclical forearm movements were studied in 15 Huntington's disease (HD) patients and 15 healthy, gender- and age-matched controls. Whereas the unimanual task was only performed at maximal speed, the bimanual movements were performed according to the in-phase and anti-phase...
