  • Frequencies were measured as a percentage of participants that preferably chose a particular grip (overhand, underhand) for a given combination of action type (translation, rotation) and target location (left, right; actor's perspective). High-frequency grip strategies are in bold. Data are from Zimmermann et al. (2012): 20 participants, 16 trials for every combination of action type and target location.
