Speed and accuracy effects of fingers and dexterity in 5-choice reaction tasks.


In two experiments we studied the influence of dexterity (controls, typists, pianists) and of differences between the five fingers of the dominant hand on speed and accuracy in a 5-choice reaction task. We used five coloured squares (Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, White) as stimuli, randomly varying foreperiods (3-10s) and an intermediate stimulus-response… (More)
