Abstract:
When switching between tasks, participants are sometimes required to use different response sets for each task: So, task switch and response set switch are commonly confounded. Eleven experiments divided into three series examined transitions of response within a linear four-finger arrangement. The first series examined cued grouping by hand or finger equivalence in both single task and task switching designs. The second considered the effect upon transitions of response when full repetition of the stimulus was included in the design. Results showed that part of the task switch cost is associated with switching between response sets, particularly those of hand.
