Abstract:

To record and analyze sequential i.e. continuous motor behavior in the human during performance of a task, a method is being devised whereby the relations of body units during spontaneous activity are measured using the angular displacement of each unit with respect to a reference body unit as a function of time. For any given sequence of behavior, the angular displacements are being reduced to linear differential equations. In addition, the sequences of behavior are being related to important physiological substrates such as brain function, cardiac output, muscle tension, respiration rate and volume, body temperature and the like.
