Thomas, Jerry R.; Yan, Jin H.; Stelmach, George E.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v75 n3 p228-44 Mar 2000
Documented the changes in movement substructures and movement time as a function of practice on a rapid aiming task using the arm and hand among 6-, 9-, and 24-year-olds. Findings suggested that, with practice, the primary submovement is lengthened so that it ends nearer the target, especially in children. (Author/KB)
