Development of Visuomanual Tracking in 5- to 9-Year-Old Boys

Guyon, Joël
Published in Journal of Experimental Child Psychology. 1985, vol. 40, p. 115-132
Abstract Visuomanual sinusoidal tracking is investigated in 5- to 9-year-old children. The proportion of successful performances steadily increases with age, but adult proficiency is never attained. Moreover, the progress in proficiency is not monotonic and suggests the presence of distinct stages in the development of visuomotor coordination. Qualitative analysis of unsuccessful performance demonstrates that failures cannot be ascribed only to insufficient motor coordination and emphasizes the role of cognitive and representational factors.
