Transfer of training in a simple motor skill along the speed dimension by Robert B Ammons( Book )

1 edition published in 1954 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The required speed of response is one of the many dimensions along which tasks vary. Although it is well-known that, in general, as the speed of a task increases, proficiency of performance decreases, the relationship between the performance of a first and second task as a function of the difference in their speed requirements is not so well known. For optimal performance of a second task there must be some best speed of the first or training task. At present, however, the specification of the speed for the optimal training task (for any given second task) must be based upon speculation unsupported by reliable data. The study being reported was designed to obtain information on the general problem of the influence of the speed of a training task upon the performance of a following task. The task used in the research was rotary pursuit at four different speeds. The speeds were assigned to the training and transfer periods in such a manner as to obtain all 16 possible combinations of speeds in the two periods. The 16 different combinations of speeds were presented under three different conditions of distribution of practice; thus, a total of 48 subgroups were employed in the experiment

The influence of practice and time on task on sensory discrimination by University of Louisville( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The effect of practice and of time on task on sens ry thresholds was studied. The nature of the mechanism underlying the practice effect for low frequency auditory thresholds was investigated. Results suggest that the effect was due to a sharpening of discrimination with practice between the tone to be discriminated and the background physiologic noise. Vigilance for auditory, electrical cutaneous and vibratory cutaneou signals over an appreciable period of time was also investigated. Detection of faint cutaneous cues is inferior to detection of faint auditory cues and detection for the former signals declines as a function of time on task. Detection of vibratory signals is more efficient than detection of cutaneous electrical signals but less efficient than detection of auditory cues. The increase in response time noted for auditory pure tone low frequency signals with increasing time on task was not noted for auditory faint white noise signals. Moderately intense cutaneous signals can be readily discriminated and detection is maintained, but detection of differences in inten e cutaneous cues is poor and declines wit time. A wider spacing of faint cutaneous cues lends to a greater decline in performance. A tentative explanation was offered in terms of a combined filter an arousal hypothesis involving differential habituation for cutaneous and auditory signals. (Author)
