Abstract:

This report is part of a study on residual attention, information load, and pilot performance. It has resulted in 1 General rules and prediction equations for evaluation of task load and operator efficiency 2 Discrimination of individual differences in attention and assessment of their predictive validity to operational performance 3 Development of training procedures for timesharing. and 4 Application of feedback control theory to operator tracking performance in timesharing Investigation of adaptive logic in acquisition of perceptual-motor skills included a review of literature on adaptive training with emphasis on current theoretical models of perceptual motor skills. Experiments were designed to investigate the role of proprioceptive and visual response-produced feedback during motor learning, and the effects of changing response-produced feedback after the same or after different amounts of practice.
