Not all brawn, but some brain. Strength gains after training alters kinematic motor abundance in hopping

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Mario Negrello –– This article advances of our understanding of motor synergies with a well quantified case of motor abundance, clear methods and meaningful results. It uses uncontrolled manifold analysis (UCM) to model and quantify motor abundance, and provides support for the interesting idea that neural systems help shape motor abundance.
