Mel - you sure do use some fancy terms-
Perhaps if you were more familiar with this 'apparent fact' you would be
aware that the research doesn't just indicate TrAb activation "in a given
limited situation" but in both upper and lower limb movements, at varying
speeds, as well as during trunk perturbation (expected and unexpected),
independent of direction of movement.
How much evidence do you want before you accept that Tr Ab is part of a
complex motor activity involving multiarticular movement?
Excuse me if I have misinterpreted your comment but I did have genuine
trouble 'unpacking' what you were trying to say.
