Abstract : The biomechanical data considered in this paper are obtained from a study carried out to understand the coordination patterns of finger forces produced from different tasks. This data cannot be considered independent because of within-individual repeated measurements, and because of simultaneous finger measurements. To fit these data, we propose a methodology focused on linear mixed models. Different random effects structures and complex variance-covariance matrices of the error are considered. We highlight how to use the lme R function to deal with such a modelling. The paper is accessible to an audience experienced with linear models. Some familiarity with the R software is also helpful.
