In addition, it calculates a random baseline, i.e. similarity of one of the observed scanpaths to its scrambled derivative....

  • Kinematic data of grasping movements directed towards virtual and real objects

    Kinematic data of grasping movements directed towards virtual and real objects was generated for the MINDA and CORTESMA CITEC Projects.
    Eleven right handed subjects (age: 24-39 years, 4 women) participated in a series of three experiments. All subjects had normal or corrected-to-normal vision and had no known impairments related to arm or hand movement. All subjects gave written informed consent to be part of the study. The experiment was carried out according to the principles laid out in the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki. Subjects performed all three experiments in the same order, starting with Experiment 1, directly followed by Experiment 2, and then Experiment 3....

  • Kinematic Data of Stick Insect Locomotion

    Insects like the stick insect can walk on rough terrain, climb obstacles, and use their legs for other behavioural tasks such as searching or reaching. These complex movements are coordinated by a fairly small, experimentally amenable and reasonably well-studied nervous system. Because of the resource-efficient information processing for solving complex behavioural tasks, the analysis and modelling of insect locomotion have been proposed as a basis for improving artificial autonomous walking robots....

Furthermore, the toolkit supports both synchronous and asynchronous use. ...
