This thesis investigates how adults, infants, and children use visual information to control reaching movements. To do this, the kinematics of a reaching movement were recorded using a 6 camera motion tracking system.

Adult reaching movements were investigated in three different experiments. The first experiment looked at the effect of visual information about the reach space and the target on reaching movements. Adult reaches are significantly affected by removal of visual informat...
