Arm-raising movements at the shoulder made to overhead locations were investigated in a weight-bearing stance with forward vision available. When discrimination of different points of contact was measured after arm elevations to the unseen overhead targets, no dominant arm advantage was found, but contacts made after the shortest (90°) arm-elevation movements were better discriminated than those from arm-at-side (180°), plus windup (540°).
