  • Table showing two-way ANOVAs on the piano performancedata obtained in HM and MD with HM/MD as the between-group factor and FINGER MOVEMENT as the within-group factor for the parameter duration and CoVar in the mezzoforte (MF) and pianissimo (PP) performance conditions. Separate analyses were performed on the data obtained before or after the proprioceptive training. Furthermore, the data obtained in healthy musicians before and in musician's dystonia after proprioceptive training were compared. The F and p values for the two-way interaction and the main effect of HM/MD as the between-group factor are given. For ANOVAs with significant results (p< 0.05) in the Mauchly's test for sphericity, Greenhouse-Geisser corrections were performed, and corrected degrees of freedom (df) are given (*).
