Figural fluency is often thought to assess the ability to "think fluently and flexibly in the visual-spatial mode" (Ruff, 1988). However, the contribution of motor regulation to the performance of this task has not been previously examined. The goal of this study was to evaluate the potential relationship between motor sequence fluency (without a visual-spatial component) and figural fluency. A total of 55 participants (ages 18 to 68 years) were administered (a) the Ruff Figural Fluency Task… CONTINUE READING
