Spatial-Temporal Organization in Memory of a Serial Motor Task.
Husak, William S.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to determine the influence that varying types of labels have on the organization of a series of movements in memory. Subjects were presented with a series of movements on a positioning task. They were provided with numeric labels for each movement held in the series. Results indicated that labels play an important role in the storage and retrieval of serial movement information with temporal labels facilitating temporal organizational patterns and spatial labels promoting spatial organization. The influence appeared to remain strong even when the series length exceeded the capacity of short term memory. (JD)
