The Effects of Division of Attention upon Required Kinesthetic and Proprioceptive Discrimination,
RIVERSIDE RESEARCH INST NEW YORK
Pagination or Media Count:
This report describes a program of research on the acquisition and execution of kinesthetically- or proprioceptively- the terms are here used interchangeably controlled motor skills, as a function of representative interfering variables, some of which have been termed stressors. The research is addressed more specifically to the effects of division of attention upon a kinesthetically-controlled motor act. Pressure on an isometric control - with its attendent feedback - is the primary task, and provides the basis for analysis.
