, when a person produces an accurate force level with four fingers, two per hand, by pressing on individual force sensors, there are strong total force-stabilizing synergies between the hands, but no synergies stabilizing each hand’s force between the two fingers of that hand ( Gorniak et al., 2007a

° external rotation than neutral ( Allegrucci, Whitney, Lephard, Irrgang, & Fu, 1995 ). Most force sense studies do not utilize multiple load targets or different joint angles. Some studies have examined this effect at the ankle, knee, index finger, and shoulder using an ipsilateral force reproduction

. In the 2-back task (i.e.,  N  = 2), participants were instructed to press any key on the keyboard whenever the presented visual stimulus was identical to the one presented next to last. In this way, participants responded by pressing any key with the right index finger whenever the current stimuli

). Children as young as 4 years are able to match their rate of finger tapping ( Drake et al., 2000 ) to an external cue, as well as accurately estimate rhythmic patterns and discriminate between varied durations ( Williams, Woollacott, & Ivry, 1992 ). Fine tuning of this ability occurs with increasing age

Qualisys Oqus (Qualisys AB, Gothenberg, Sweden) sampling at 179 Hz measured the position of a small passive marker affixed to the posterior surface of participants’ right index finger. The lights in the laboratory were dimmed to ensure appropriate vision of all LEDs while reducing background visual cues

familiarization visit, each participant’s maximal voluntary contraction of the dominant finger flexors (self-determined) was assessed. Following this, participants completed the protocol, as shown in Figure  1 , on each of 3 subsequent visits, with 3 to 6 days between visits. The warm-up consisted of 5-minute

Based on the literature reviewed above, we predicted that the two groups would perform sliding movements with similar accuracy and efficiency, but would differ when asked to perform

. Alternatively, sex differences in digit ratios could arise if bones from different fingers are differentially receptive to sex steroids or if the bones of different fingers have similar responses to sex steroids but differ in their temporal pattern of growth. However, it should be noted that specific direct
