Aim: 2 experiments examined the characteristics of bilateral transfer of force management in an exceedingly consecutive task from a dominant limb to non-dominant limb.

Setting: The experiments were conducted in an exceedingly university research lab settled in Lone-Star State, USA.

Population Sample: a complete of sixty healthy haircoats took part within the study, with thirty participants for every experiment.

Method: Every experiment consisted of 2 clusters; experimental cluster and management group. The participants within the management teams solely participated in pre and posttests. The participants within the experimental teams learned a consecutive task consisting of an occasional force management (10% of most Voluntary Contraction (MVC), Experiment one) and learned a consecutive task with a better force management (50% of MVC, Experiment 2). throughout the pretest, every participant completed the task with each hand before performing arts observe trials together with his or her dominant hand solely. A posttest was conducted one hour later.

Results: For each experimental team, fine control considerably improved with the trained limb. significantly, bilateral transfer of learning was solely ascertained for the experimental cluster once learning with higher degree (i.e. amount) of force management (i.e. five hundredth MVC) in Experiment a pair of, and not for the experimental cluster in Experiment one (i.e. 10% MVC).

Conclusion: These findings indicate that bilateral transfer of force management is sensitive to the degree of the force production being learned. That is, a bilateral transfer of force management will solely be found for a high degree of learning force, like five hundredth of MVC within the gift study, and not with an occasional degree of learning force (e.g. 100 percent of MVC). this might have a bearing on learning and relearning motor skills in sports and rehabilitation setting.
