Flashcards in Week 5 - Dynamical Systems Deck (13):
What is the collective variable in the kelso experiment?
What is the control parameter in the kelso experiment?
Switch from anti to in phase in kelso experiment is what feature of the self-organization system?
What is the dynamical systems approach to skilled movements called?
Which of the four fundamental problems of motor behaviour is the dynamical systems approach PRIMARILY trying to solve?
Degrees of freedom
What are the 6 features of the self-organization system?
Pattern formation, Bifurications (transitions), Multistability, Hysteresis, Critical Slowing down and Critical fluctuations
What are discrete movements?
Movements with a clear beginning and end
What are continuous (rhythmic) movements?
Movements that repeat
Why is most dynamical research based on rhythmic movements?
important biologically and easy to study
What did Kelso think about discrete and rhythmic movements?
Believed that discrete movements are overdamped rhythmic movements
What did Sternad think about discrete and rhythmic movements?
Believed that they are two seperate movements
What did Jirsa think about discrete and rhythmic movements?
Used the excitator model, which is motivated by models of a neuron.
