    Abstract

    The leading joint hypothesis (LJH) offers a novel interpretation of control of human movements that involve multiple joints. The LJH makes control of each multijoint movement transparent. This review highlights effective applications of the LJH to learning of new motor skills and to analysis of movement changes caused by aging and motor disorders.
