This study investigated the role played by Blocked (low contextual interference) and Random (high contextual interference) schedules in the acquisition of rhythmic footstep sequences by adolescent females (N = 40, M age = 15.8 yr., SD = 1.3). After a baseline assessment (T0), motor learning was assessed after six sessions (T1) in terms of the participants' ability to reproduce the step sequences using visual and auditory guidance. A retention test (T2) also occurred 21 days after T1. Analysis… CONTINUE READING
