Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

This study examined motor decisions for reaching at targets of variable distance in children with hemiplegia. When reaching with the hemiplegic and nonhemiplegic hand, children overestimated their abilities. Cognitive and biomechanical constraints underlie functional performance in goal-directed tasks.
