Abstract: Whereas previous studies on interlimb coordination have mainly underscored the ubiquitous tendency to synchronize the motions of the limbs, the present experiment revealed a small, but distinct, interlimb asynchrony or phase offset, i.e. the dominant limb led the non-dominant limb during the production of bimanual circle drawing. This asynchrony was clearly evident in the majority of right-handers, but not in left-handers. Moreover, attentional cueing affected the size of the asynchrony. Instructions to visually monitor the dominant limb or non-dominant limb strengthened and weakened the phase offset, respectively. A multifactorial neural account is proposed to underly the temporal asynchrony.
