Two experiments examined the effects of concurrent verbal processing on the ability to tap at a consistent rate with the left and right index fingers. Variability in the intertap intervals was divided into two components that reflect different processes involved in such paced tapping. One component reflects the consistency of an internal time-keeping mechanism and the other component reflects the consistency of motor implementation. The imposition of a concurrent verbal processing task… CONTINUE READING
