Bimanual Control Task (Diedrichsen, 2007)

This task was developed to highlight the bimanual capabilities of the Kinarm Lab. It was built and compiled for Dexterit-E 3.5, using R2013a. It can run on either a Kinarm Exoskeleton or Kinarm End-Point lab.

Although the intent of the code was re-create the experiments performed by Diedrichsen (2007), there has not been a strict verification to ensure that all details of the experiment have been properly replicated. There are 4 task protocols included: a short demonstration of various parts of the task along with 3 protocols that implement the different experiments in the original paper.

Custom Control of the Trial Protocol Order
Normally, Dexterit-E manages and controls the order in which Trial Protocols (TPs) execute based on what is defined in the block table of the Task Protocol (see the Dexterit-E User Guide for more details).
