Abstract:
The cognitive context of sensorimotor synchronisation (SMS) starts with the assumption that performance of relatively simple behaviour emerges through the background noise of a psychological context. Despite progress, and growth in understanding of the component sources of variability in cognition, perception and action, the role of more executive cognitive processes have not yet been well integrated to successful models of sensorimotor synchronisation. This thesis presents a series of studies investigating more precisely the role of executive control functions on the variability of repetitive production of movements. The findings of the 5 experiments presented are discussed in relation to existent theories and ongoing debates in the field of sensorimotor synchronisation. The contribution of this research highlights the importance of executive processes often overlooked when assessing the nature of variability in rhythmic movement production and opens some clear pathways for future research, adjustments to current models used, and novel paradigms.
