Thus, we focused on replicating and extending their results by using different types of stimuli and different attentional
The induction of an external focus of attention is considered to facilitate automaticity, as illustrated by greater movement fluidity, (18) increased functional variability, (19) high-frequency movement corrections reflecting greater involvement of reflexes, (20) and reduced attentional
Additionally, it is deviation sound effects, as opposed to the changing state sound effect that results from a disengagement of attentional
selectivity from the serial recall task.
According to Quimet, Gawronski, and Dozois (2009), many studies have shown that attention cannot be treated as a uniform, one-dimensional construct (see also Posner, 1980), while Koster and colleagues (2006) have observed that the exact nature of attentional
biases remains elusive (see also Fox et al.
One line of inquiry on attentional
focus has compared the relative effectiveness of adopting an internal versus an external focus when learning and performing motor skills.
The attention tasks are well-accepted animal homologues of clinical tests used to assess attentional
function in children and adults (Bari et al.
This tests a pilot's ability to manage attentional
It consists of three subscales: attentional
impulsiveness, motor impulsiveness, non-planning impulsiveness.
deployment, individuals use distraction to divert their attention from negative aspects of their experiences to positive ones.
Over all impulsivity, attentional
, motor, non- planning impulsivity is high in manic and substance abused patients .
Other studies have observed significant improvements through the IVA/CPT, exclusively at an attentional
level (Yan et al.
Abstract: This investigation explored the relationship between task intensity competitive setting and attentional
strategy in collegiate rowers.
However, investigations in relation to the impact of attentional
focus instructions on serial skills have received little attention in motor control and learning research.
In other words, rhythmic motions or bimanual coordination motions have been less used in studying the effects of attentional
The underlying mechanism for the bilingual advantage may be the constant need in a bilingual person to selectively activate one language and suppress the other, which may lead to a better development of executive functions and attentional
tasks, the authors wrote in a paper published online Nov.
