Mefferd, Antje S.; Corder, Erin E. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2014
Purpose: To improve our understanding about the underlying factors of aging-related speaking rate decline, the authors sought to determine if lip and jaw speeds are physiologically constrained in older adults. Method: Thirty-six female--10 young adults (ages 22-27 years), 9 middle-aged adults (ages 45-55 years), 10 young-old adults (65-74 years),…

Taub, Gordon E.; McGrew, Kevin S.; Keith, Timothy Z. – Journal of Research in Childhood Education, 2015
This article examines the effect of improvements in timing/rhythmicity on mathematics achievement. A total of 86 participants attending 1st through 4th grades completed pre- and posttest measures of mathematics achievement from the Woodcock-Johnson III Tests of Achievement. Students in the experimental group participated in a 4-week intervention…

Hove, Michael J.; Spivey, Michael J.; Krumhansl, Carol L. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2010
Prior research indicates that synchronized tapping performance is very poor with flashing visual stimuli compared with auditory stimuli. Three finger-tapping experiments compared flashing visual metronomes with visual metronomes containing a spatial component, either compatible, incompatible, or orthogonal to the tapping action. In Experiment 1,…

Van Sickle, Angela – EBP Briefs (Evidence-based Practice Briefs), 2016
Clinical Question: Would individuals with acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) demonstrate greater improvements for speech production with an articulatory kinematic approach or a rate/rhythm approach? Method: EBP Intervention Comparison Review. Study Sources: ASHA journal, Google Scholar, PubMed, CINAHL Plus with Full Text, Web of Science, Ovid, and…

Seli, Paul; Cheyne, James Allan; Smilek, Daniel – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2013
Mind wandering is a pervasive feature of human cognition often associated with the withdrawal of task-related executive control processes. Here, we explore the possibility that, in tasks requiring executive control to sustain consistent responding, moments of mind wandering could be associated with moments of increased behavioral variability. To…

Taub, Gordon E.; Lazarus, Philip J. – Contemporary Issues in Education Research, 2012
This study investigated the relationship between improvement in students' timing/rhythmicity and reading achievement. Two hundred eighty high school-age participants completed pre- and post-test measures from the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement-III (Woodcock, McGrew, & Mather, 2001). Students in the experimental group participated in a…

Seli, Paul; Carriere, Jonathan S. A.; Thomson, David R.; Cheyne, James Allan; Martens, Kaylena A. Ehgoetz; Smilek, Daniel – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2014
In the present work, we investigate the hypothesis that failures of task-related executive control that occur during episodes of mind wandering are associated with an increase in extraneous movements (fidgeting). In 2 studies, we assessed mind wandering using thought probes while participants performed the metronome response task (MRT), which…

Kline, Donald W.; And Others – International Journal of Aging and Human Development, 1980
The time judgments of the older participants were significantly and systematically determined by a metronome rate. Results are consistent with the notion of increased field-dependence among older persons and suggest that their greater social conformity and their inability to ignore irrelevant stimuli might also be explicable.

Bergamin, Marco; Ermolao, Andrea; Matten, Sonia; Sieverdes, John C.; Zaccaria, Marco – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2015
Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the physiological responses during upper-body aquatic exercises in older adults with different pool temperatures. Method: Eleven older men (aged 65 years and older) underwent 2 identical aquatic exercise sessions that consisted of 3 upper-body exercises using progressive intensities (30, 35, and 40…

Rosenblum, Sara; Regev, Noga – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2013
Timing ability is essential for common everyday performance. The aim of the study was to compare timing abilities and temporal aspects of handwriting performance and relationships between these two components among children with Developmental Coordination Disorders (DCD) and a control group. Forty two children, 21 diagnosed as DCD and 21 with…

Poncy, Brian C.; Skinner, Christopher H.; Axtell, Philip K. – Psychology in the Schools, 2010
A multiple-probe-across-problem-sets (tasks) design was used to evaluate the effects of the Detect, Practice, and Repair (DPR) on multiplication-fact fluency development in seven third-grade students nominated by their teacher as needing remediation. DPR is a multicomponent intervention and begins with a group-administered, metronome-paced…

Zelaznik, Howard N.; Goffman, Lisa – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2010
Purpose: To examine whether children with specific language impairment (SLI) differ from normally developing peers in motor skills, especially those skills related to timing. Method: Standard measures of gross and fine motor development were obtained. Furthermore, finger and hand movements were recorded while children engaged in 4 different timing…

Wollner, Clemens; Deconinck, Frederik J. A.; Parkinson, Jim; Hove, Michael J.; Keller, Peter E. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2012
Aesthetic theories have long suggested perceptual advantages for prototypical exemplars of a given class of objects or events. Empirical evidence confirmed that morphed (quantitatively averaged) human faces, musical interpretations, and human voices are preferred over most individual ones. In this study, biological human motion was morphed and…

Akbulut Demirci, Sirin – Online Submission, 2012
Practicing scales has important place in piano education to improve students' technique and dexterity, aslo improve timing and help the ear training. This research is qualitative research was made by interviewing six piano teachers who is working in Piano Education Departments in Turkey with semi-structured questions. It was indentify how has…

Hallam, Susan; Rinta, Tiija; Varvarigou, Maria; Creech, Andrea; Papageorgi, Ioulia; Gomes, Teresa; Lanipekun, Jennifer – Psychology of Music, 2012
There has been considerable research considering how instrumental practice changes as expertise develops. Much of that research has been relatively small scale and restricted in the range of instrumentalists included. This paper aimed to explore the development of practising strategies and motivation to practise as expertise develops with a large…
