Title The ideomotor principle and motor sequence acquisition: Tone effects facilitate movement chunking Type Journal Article
Year 2004 Publication Psychological Research/Psychologische Forschung Abbreviated Journal
Volume 68 Issue 2 Pages 126-137
Keywords ideomotor principle; motor sequence acquisition; tone effects; response effects; sequence length effects; movement chunking; Auditory Stimulation; Chunking; Learning; Motor Processes; Responses; Ideation
Abstract Participants practiced short sequences of key presses; sequence length and response-effect mapping were the independent variables. Contingent, distinct key-effect relations were contrasted with either contingent but uniform or no response effects. In Experiment 1, tone effects were relevant as response-specific stimuli and also as effects. The sequence length effect for the tones group was reduced. In Experiment 2, participants were informed about the sequences to be executed and then given varying amounts of preparation time before the start signal. A reduction in the sequence length effect was observed, and initiation times and mean interresponse time (IRTs) were generally reduced in the tone group. Preparation time could compensate for some but not all of the latency reducing influence of the tone effects. The results are discussed with reference to ideomotor approaches to motor control, i.e., the notion that actions are represented in sensory format.

Notes The first edition of this book established itself as the leading book on this topic of growing importance. It was critically acclaimed (recipient of the Software Development Magazine Productivity Award) and widely embraced by customers. The second edition maintains the goals of the first edition: to define and explain software architecture, and to demonstrate, through real-world case studies, its importance for software system design. The added goals of the second edition are to bring the content up-to-date with significant developments in the understanding and practice of software architecture in the past five years. These developments include advances in architecture analysis, design, reconstruction, and documentation–advances in which the authors, through their work at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), have played a direct and prominent role.<br/><br/>print<br/><br/>xxii, 528 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.<br/><br/>Len Bass, Paul Clements, Rick Kazman.<br/><br/>Includes bibliographical references (p. 489-494) and index.<br/><br/> Approved no

Title Are There Age Differences in Intraindividual Variability in Working Memory Performance? Type Journal Article
Year 2006 Publication Journals of Gerontology: Series B: Psychological Sciences and Social Sciences Abbreviated Journal
Volume 61 Issue 1 Pages 18-24
Keywords age differences; intraindividual variability; working memory performance; response time; older adults; younger adults; Cognitive Ability; Reaction Time; Response Variability; Short Term Memory; Aging
Abstract It has been suggested, primarily based on response time (RT) data, that there is an age-related increase in intraindividual variability. To determine whether older adults show more intraindividual variability in working memory (WM) performance, we had younger and older adults perform three verbal WM tasks of varying complexity as well as a same-different judgment RT task. For both groups, individual performance tended to be more variable on the two complex span tasks than on the simple span task. Although older adults showed greater variability on the RT task, consistent with previous studies, they did not show greater variability on any of the WM tasks. These findings fail to support theories of frontal lobe aging that predict greater moment-to-moment fluctuations in the performance of older adults.

Title Individual differences in components of reaction time distributions and their relations to working memory and intelligence Type Journal Article
Year 2007 Publication Journal of Experimental Psychology: General Abbreviated Journal
Volume 136 Issue 3 Pages 414-429
Keywords reaction time distributions; ex-Gaussian; EZ diffusion model; working memory; intelligence; individual differences; Reaction Time; Short Term Memory; Normal Distribution
Abstract The authors bring together approaches from cognitive and individual differences psychology to model characteristics of reaction time distributions beyond measures of central tendency. Ex-Gaussian distributions and a diffusion model approach are used to describe individuals' reaction time data. The authors identified common latent factors for each of the 3 ex-Gaussian parameters and for 3 parameters central to the diffusion model using structural equation modeling for a battery of choice reaction tasks. These factors had differential relations to criterion constructs. Parameters reflecting the tail of the distribution (i.e., Ï" in the ex-Gaussian and drift rate in the diffusion model) were the strongest unique predictors of working memory, reasoning, and psychometric speed. Theories of controlled attention and binding are discussed as potential theoretical explanations. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved). (from the journal abstract)
