d-Space problem and solution set: Relearning to walk after a stroke

  • Jan E. Holly
  • Gin McCollum


A discrete formalism, d-spaces, developed for analyzing complex movements, can be used to construct modes in which a stroke patient may relearn to walk. A specific example is sketched. The analogy between movement dissonance and quantum incompatibility is explored, along with an observationally-based distinction between dissonant and nonfunctional movement.
