Abstract:
A range of approaches to studying temporal visuomotor adaptation, grounded in the literature on spatial misalignment has been examined. Where the visuomotor misalignment was sufficiently small, and the stimulus sufficiently predictable, this has resulted in behavioural, but not perceptual adaptation to temporal misalignment in visuomotor coordination tasks. This is in contrast to findings in the spatial literature, and in the temporal literature for intersensory and visuomotor non-coordination tasks. A possible reason for this discrepancy is that time-critical visuomotor coordination behaviour may rely on representations dissociable from those more processed representations available for retrospective judgments.
