Currently, the available literature cannot provide definitive advice as to whether a sensory or a motor set will provide the faster reaction times. Two reasons have been proposed for the apparently incompatible results--and these were examined here. The first reason holds that the traditional motor set instructions were inappropriate because they misdirected subjects' attention to output execution which, in turn, resulted in prolonged RTs. Second, spontaneous set preferences (i.e., the set… CONTINUE READING
