Article
We over-estimate or under-estimate the size of an object depending its background structure (e.g., the Ebbinghaus illusion). Since deciding and preparing to execute a movement is based on perception, motor performance deteriorates due to the faulty perception of information. Therefore, such cognitive process can be a source of a failure in motor pe...

Baseball batters must react to pitches delivered to different locations within the strike zone by modulating their movements. In tee-batting practice, such batters place a ball on a tee stand at a location, where they intend to hit the ball, assuming a particular pitch's trajectory. In the present study, we analysed three-dimensional movements in t...
Article
ABSTRACT Given that visual estimation of an object's size is affected by an illusory figure, the present study investigates the Ebbinghaus size-illusion effect on visuomotor performance within different preview durations for viewing an object (no preview, 300, 700, 1500, and 3000 ms) before initiating the movement. Twenty participants performed the...
Article
Debate exists as to whether humans use prospective or predictive control to intercept an object falling under gravity (Baurès et al. in Vis Res 47:2982-2991, 2007; Zago et al. in Vis Res 48:1532-1538, 2008). Prospective control involves using continuous information to regulate action. τ, the ratio of the size of the gap to the rate of gap closure,...
Article
For motor activities, visual information is crucial for organizing a movement with respect to a given situation. The present study investigates how cognitive information processing is associated with this visuomotor process. Brain dynamics in executing two perceptual-motor tasks were examined in terms of event-related synchronization (ERS) and even...
Article
In baseball hitting, a powerful bat-swing needs to be produced by utilizing ground reaction force (GRF) and it should also be temporally coordinated relative to the flight of the pitch. The temporal organization of hitting movements associated with these task requirements was investigated by analyzing GRF during hitting slow and fast pitches. The t...

We investigate the skill of rhythmically bouncing a ball on a racket with a focus on the mathematical modeling of the stability of performance. As a first step we derive the deterministic ball bouncing map as a Poincaré section of a sinusoidally driven bouncing ball. Subsequently, we show the ball bouncing map to have a passively stable regime. Mor...

Ball-racket interactions were investigated in a task where participants propelled a ball rhythmically into the air. The study contrasted two ball-racket conditions: (1) an elastic impact where the ball was able to rebound due to the elasticity of the colliding objects and participants bounced the ball, and (2) a non-elastic impact where the coeffic...

Rhythmically bouncing a ball with a racket was investigated and modeled with a nonlinear map. Model analyses provided a variable defining a dynamically stable solution that obviates computationally expensive corrections. Three experiments evaluated whether dynamic stability is optimized and what perceptual support is necessary for stable behavior....

On the basis of a modified bouncing-ball model, we investigated whether human movements utilize principles of dynamic stability in their performance of a similar movement task. Stability analyses of the model provided predictions about conditions indicative of a dynamically stable period-one regime. In a series of experiments, human subjects bounce...

Article
This study was designed to examine how baseball batters adjust their batting actions to slow-speed and fast-speed pitches by measuring the ground reaction forces. The followings were revealed during different phases of the batting action. 1) At the take-back motion phase, the weight was transferred onto the catcher-side foot. The ground reaction fo...
