This experiment examined the acquisition of the global and local dynamics of the changes in the total body center of mass-platform and inter-limb coordination motions over the course of practice (20, 30 s trials each day for 7 days) in the ski-simulator task. Four blocks of trials, representative of early, moderate, and extensive practice were analyzed through power spectrum and coherence analyses. The oscillation frequencies of the knee joints became tuned to that of the platform-performer system and there were changes due to practice in the lower inter-limb coordination dynamics independent of the center of mass and platform coordination pattern. Acquisition of global level dynamics occurs to achieve a stable task solution that can allow for degenerate frequency- and phase-locking of the mechanical degrees of freedom at both the local intra- and inter-limb levels.
