Many of our daily activities, especially dexterous manipulative actions, rely heavily on the remarkable versatility of our hands. Everyday experience infers that individual fingers differ in their facility of usage. A review of the literature revealed that the motor capacity of individual fingers in terms of isometric force generation is different. It was also found that information about dynamic motor ability of individual fingers is sparse. The overall purpose of our studies, I review in this paper, is to investigate the dynamic motor function of individual fingers in human by means of tapping tasks.
