  • Working memory load does not affect sequential motor planning
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-30
    Christoph Schütz; Thomas Schack

    Movement planning disrupts the recall performance in a short term memory task, indicating that both processes share common working memory (WM) resources. In the current study, we tested whether this interference was bidirectional. To this end, we combined an easy or a difficult memory task (depleting different amounts of WM resources) with a sequential motor task (opening a column of drawers). The

  • Twin mechanisms: Rapid scene recognition involves both feedforward and feedback processing
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-30
    Xukun Zhang; Yusheng Sun; Wei Liu; Zhijun Zhang; Binxing Wu

    The low spatial frequency (LSF) component of visual information rapidly conveyed coarse information for global perception, while the high spatial frequency (HSF) component delivered fine-grained information for detailed analyses. The feedforward theorists deemed that a coarse-to-fine process was sufficient for a rapid scene recognition. Based on the response priming paradigm, the present study aimed

  • Performance-related stress mediates the online control and integration of sequential movements
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-30
    Natalie Goddard; James W. Roberts

    The effects of stress on directing attention within performance have been broadly explained by self-focus and distraction perspectives, where stress causes attention to be drawn internally or toward the sources of worry, respectively. Recent studies that have adopted manual aiming under different levels of stress have illuminated our understanding of the stress-performance framework. The present study

  • Still want to help? Interpersonal coordination's effects on helping behaviour after a 24 hour delay.
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-19
    Liam Cross,John Michael,Luke Wilsdon,Agnes Henson,Gray Atherton

    A fast-growing literature is establishing how moving in time together has pro-social consequences, though no work to date has explored the persistence of these effects over time. Across two studies, people who had previously performed coordinated movements were over three times more likely to give their time to help their co-actor when asked 24 hours later than those who had performed a similar but

  • Prosocial effects of coordination - What, how and why?
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-15
    John Michael,Luke McEllin,Annalena Felber

    A wealth of research in recent decades has investigated the effects of various forms of coordination upon prosocial attitudes and behavior. To structure and constrain this research, we provide a framework within which to distinguish and interrelate different hypotheses about the psychological mechanisms underpinning various prosocial effects of various forms of coordination. To this end, we introduce

  • The effects of observing and producing gestures on Japanese word learning.
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-15
    Naomi Sweller,Aya Shinooka-Phelan,Elizabeth Austin

    While observing and producing gesture can enhance native language learning, research in foreign word learning is limited. English-speaking university students were verbally presented with Japanese verbs with their English translations in one of three conditions: no gesture, observing an instructor's iconic gestures, or observing and reproducing the instructor's gestures. Participants verbally recalled

  • Rhythmic auditory stimuli heard before and during a reaching movement elicit performance improvements in both temporal and spatial movement parameters.
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-15
    Carrie M Peters,Cheryl M Glazebrook

    Rhythmic auditory stimuli (RAS) have been proposed to improve motor performance in populations with and without sensorimotor impairments. However, the reasons for the reported benefits are poorly understood. One idea is that RAS may supplement intrinsic feedback when other sensory input is diminished. The current experiment tested this idea by removing vision during a goal-directed reaching task. We

  • Anticipation in sociomotor actions: Similar effects for in- and outgroup interactions.
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-15
    Lisa Weller,Roland Pfister,Wilfried Kunde

    In social interactions, own actions often trigger a particular response from another person. The sociomotor framework proposes that this consistent behavior of others can become incorporated into own action control. In line with this idea, recent studies have shown that own motor actions are facilitated if they are predictably being imitated rather than counterimitated by a social interaction partner

  • Implicit attentional biases in a changing environment.
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-13
    Benchi Wang,Jan Theeuwes

    The current study investigates whether statistical regularities that change over time affect attentional selection. While searching for a target singleton, the distractor singleton was presented much more often in one location than in all other locations. Crucially, the location that had a distractor much more often, changed to new locations during the course of the experiment. Here we established

  • Investigating the effect of trustworthiness on instruction-based reflexivity.
    Acta Psychol. (IF 1.595) Pub Date : 2020-05-13

    Unlike other species, humans are capable of rapidly learning new behavior from a single instruction. While previous research focused on the cognitive processes underlying the rapid, automatic implementation of instructions, the fundamentally social nature of instruction following has remained largely unexplored. Here, we investigated whether instructor trustworthiness modulates instruction implementation
