The Effect of Bilateral Transfer on Coincidence-Anticipation Performance.
Dunham, Paul, Jr.
This experiment was undertaken to determine whether coincidence-anticipation (intercepting a moving object at a designated point and instant) is facilitated for one side of the body after practice by the other side of the body. This phenomenon is called bilateral transference. Subjects were asked to throw a switch five times with their right (preferred) foot, then 25 times with their (non-preferred) foot, and then five times with the right again. Performance with the left foot indicated that learning had taken place from the prior practice with the right foot. The control group had five trials with the right foot, a ten-minute rest, and five more trials with the right foot. (Tables and references are included.) (CD)
