The notions of joint stiffness and synaptic plasticity in motor memory

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 19 (3):465-466 (1996)

Abstract
We criticize the synaptic theory of long-term memory and the inappropriate usage of physical notions such as in motor control theories. Motor control and motor memory hypotheses should be based on explicitly specified hypothetical control variables that are sound from both physiological and physical perspectives.
