Has anyone got any suggestions for the interpretation of some amazing
results that we have recently obtained.

The title of our project was:
Does semantic categorisation influence the performance of a coordinated
motor action?
Basically, we assessed the bilateral reach to grasp action
kinematically.
Participants were required to slide two trolleys together. We
manipulated
the picture-pairs that were on the trolleys. The different living pairs
were Animal?Animal, Vegetable/vegetable, Fruit/Fruit, Animal/fruit etc
