Serial Reaction Time Learning in Preschool- and School-Age Children.
Thomas, Kathleen M.; Nelson, Charles A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v79 n4 p364-87 Aug 2001
Two experiments assessed visuomotor sequence learning in 4- to 10-year-olds using a serial reaction time (SRT) task with random and sequenced trials. Found that children demonstrated sequence-specific decreases in RT. Participants with explicit awareness of the sequence at the session's end showed larger sequence-specific RT decrements than unaware participants. Age-related differences emerged primarily in explicit rather than implicit knowledge. (KB)
