Abstract

Motor adaptations not only recalibrate movement execution but also can lead to altered movement perception in multiple sensory domains. Vazquez, Statton, Busgang, and Bastian (J Neurophysiol 114: 3255-3267, 2015) recently showed that splitbelt walking affects perception of leg speed during walking, but not perceptions of leg position during standing and walking or perception of contact force during stepping. Considering their findings within the broader scope of sensorimotor recalibration in other tasks, we suggest that sensorimotor recalibrations are task specific and can be multisensory.
