Sample text

Objects of many sizes and shapes are grasped by the human hand, in such a way that they may be applied forcefully or delicately to tasks and maneuvered into varying positions by the thumb and fingers. Grips used for these purposes have been classified in a number of different ways, relating to the different types of analysis requiring the classification. Much of the medical and anthropological literature refemng to manipulative behavior and its morphological correlates employs a simple pair of terns, power gnps and precision gnps, introduced by Napier [l] to describe the difference between grips that stabilize objects against the palm and those that permit maneuvering of objects by the thumb and fingers, away from the palm.

However, several recent studies are considered by MacNeilage [22] to be suggestive of a right-hand bias for manipulative tasks and a left hand preference for tasks involving strong visuospatial demands, and Hopkins and Morris [36] find some evidence for hand preferences in cawing, object manipulation, and leading limb in locomotion to be compelling. Central to investigations of functional laterality recently has been an hypothesis proposed by MacNeilage et al. [34], that right-hand bias for postural support during left-hand reaching in prosimians may have led to a right-hand bias among apes and monkeys for retrieving and processing food requiring force and control by the hand.

Jeannerod of the reaching and grasping components are correctly achieved in situations where the hand remains invisible to the subject. Similarly, the size of the maximum grip aperture correlates with the size of the object in the absence of visual feedback from the hand [14, 151. Representation of object affordances, however, must be reactivated by visual input, in order to steer the movement until its completion. The visual signals involved in this process must arise fiom the central retina. Prehension movements directed at objects presented within the peripheral visual field are not only slower and less accurate, but show an incomplete grip formation and improper shaping of the fingers [29].
