Timing of Skilled Motor Performance: Tests of the Proportional Duration Model.
Genter, Donald R.
Psychological Review, v94 n2 p255-76 Apr 1987
This article examines a current, explicit, central theory accounting for the observed flexibility in motor performance: the generalized motor program with a multiplicative rate parameter. Reanalysis of data reported in the literature and a study of skilled typewriting show that a generalized motor program generally does not fit observed performance. (Aurthor/LMO)
