Conference Paper
To be data literate, one should be able to draw conclusions from multivariable observational data. But this is tricky. E.g., to investigate the gender pay gap, it must be decided whether the effect should be calculated adjusted or unadjusted for job. The correct conclusion depends on the qualitative assumptions about the data generating process. To...

Hochsensible Personen zeichnen sich durch eine besondere Empfindsamkeit für sensorische Reize aus. In unserem Beitrag untersuchen wir, ob diese Empfindsamkeit mit im Arbeitskontext förderlichen Kompetenzen dieser Personen verbunden ist. Im ersten Teil unseres Artikels zeigen wir anhand einer querschnittliche schriftliche Befragung an N = 315 deutsc...
Chapter
Wissenschaft und die Kompetenzen wissenschaftlichen Arbeitens allgemein werden als unverzichtbar für die Arbeitswelt des 21. Jahrhunderts gesehen. Allerdings kursiert in der Wissenschaft der Begriff der Krise, in der sich die Wissenschaft befände. Darüber hinaus hat die Digitalisierung angefangen, die Arbeitsweise der Wissenschaft von Grund auf umz...
Chapter
In diesem Kapitel geben wir einen Überblick über unterschiedliche Forschungstraditionen im Bereich des motorischen Lernens, indem wir motorisches Lernen auf unterschiedlichen Zeitskalen betrachten: Sensomotorische Adaptation beschreibt motorisches Lernen auf der kürzesten Zeitskala. Fertigkeitserwerb bezieht sich auf den länger andauernden Erwerb e...

Job satisfaction is one of the most prominent working models of occupational and organizational psychology. So far, job satisfaction has been operationalized mainly as a one-dimensional model; this not only repeatedly led to mistakes but also to excessively positive judgements of the job satisfaction. The necessity to see the creation of job satisf...

Adaptation to sensorimotor transformations has received much attention in recent years. However, the role of motivation and its relation to the implicit and explicit processes underlying adaptation has been neglected thus far. Here, we examine the influence of extrinsic motivation on adaptation to a visuomotor rotation by way of providing financial...
Poster
Full-text available
There is an increasing concern about the reliability of research results. One reason is that it has been found that many published results cannot be replicated.. In parts, this can be due to the fact that it is often hardly possible for independent researchers to confirm (ie., reproduce) the results of a research paper. Thus, making research more r...
Article
Modern technologies progressively create workplaces in which the execution of movements and the observation of their consequences are spatially separated. Challenging workplaces in which users act via technical equipment in a distant space include aviation, applied medical engineering and virtual reality. When using a tool, proprioceptive/tactile f...
Article
Previous research has shown that unilateral visual neglect is improved when patients are required to actively grasp an object at its center, rather than only pointing to its center. A similar dissociation between pointing and grasping responses has been reported for pseudoneglect, a spatial bias toward the left side of space that is normally exhibi...
Article
Full-text available
For some types of visuo-motor transformations like large visuo-motor rotations or the complex transformation of a sliding first-order lever, distinct adaptive processes have been hypothesized that produce a rapid, discrete approximation of the transformation and a slow, graded fine tuning, respectively. Here we investigate whether part-task trainin...
Article
Extending the body with a tool could imply that characteristics of hand movements become characteristics of the movement of the effective part of the tool. Recent research suggests that such distal shifts are subject to boundary conditions. Here we propose the existence of three constraints: a strategy constraint, a constraint of movement character...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper we review and integrate a set of findings on learning the transformation of a sliding first-order lever, a type of tool with a prominent role in minimal access surgery. Its kinematic transformation is characterized by the so-called fulcrum effect, the inversion of the movement direction of the tip of the lever relative to that of the...
Chapter
This chapter reveals that the ability to use complex tools or the expertise over complex visuomotor transformations can be investigated from applied and basic-research perspectives. It relies on the basic-research approach to address issues such as accuracy, transparency, awareness, aging, and representation of an existing idea in a new way. Invest...
Article
One of the fundamental concomitants of aging is generalized slowing of almost all motor and mental functions. The present study aimed to elucidate the generality of slowing across different sensorimotor tasks. Results show that although slowing can be found in many tasks, older adults perform faster in a tracing task compared to their younger count...
Article
For the efficient use of tools, the visuo-motor transformation relating body movements to movements of the effective part of the tool has to be learned. Here we ask whether adaptation to a complex tool transformation generalizes to new regions of the workspace of the tool. Three groups of participants performed goal-directed movements of a cursor o...
Article
Previous research suggests that the acquisition of an internal model of a complex visuo-motor transformation might proceed as a progression of approximations. Here, we test this assumption by comparing performance of three groups of participants during practice and subsequent open-loop tests with three different types of visuo-motor transformation:...
Article
Human movements are quickly adjusted to variations of inertial load. However, this adjustment does not always imply a full compensation, so that kinematic movement characteristics vary. The present experiment served to explore the consequences of a complex dynamic transformation, implemented by a sliding first-order lever, on the endpoint distribut...
Article
We investigated the impact of enhanced mechanical transparency during practice on closed-loop performance as well as on the acquisition of an internal representation of the visuo-motor transformation of a lever. Three groups of participants controlled a cursor on a monitor by moving the effort arm of a sliding two-sided lever. The level of mechanic...
Conference Paper
When using tools effects in body space and distant space often do not correspond or are even in conflict. The ideomotor principle holds that actors select, initiate and execute movements by activating the anticipatory codes of the movements’ sensory effects (Greenwald, 1970; James, 1890). These may be representations of body-related effects and/or...
Article
For the effective use of modern tools, the inherent visuo-motor transformation needs to be mastered. The successful adjustment to and learning of these transformations crucially depends on practice conditions, particularly on the type of visual feedback during practice. Here, a review about empirical research exploring the influence of continuous a...

Article
The benefits of modern technologies such as personal computers, in-vehicle navigation systems, and electronic organizers are evident in everyday life. However, only recently has it been proposed that the increasing use of personal computers in producing written texts may significantly contribute to the loss of handwriting skills. Such a fundamental...
Article
Voluntary movements embrace both intentional, conscious and post-intentional, largely automatic processes. Here, we examine these types of processes and the relations between them during preparation and execution of voluntary movements. First, a general overview is given about how intentional and post-intentional components are interleaved to enabl...
Article
This study investigated the influence of the type of visual feedback during practice with a complex visuo-motor transformation of a sliding two-sided lever on the acquisition of an internal model of the transformation. Three groups of participants, who practised with different types of visual feedback, were compared with regard to movement accuracy...
Article
Humans have unique abilities in using tools. The skilled and goal-directed use of a tool implies that processes of motor control can be adjusted to the transformation of the movement of a part of the body into the movement of the effective part of the tool. A common example is the transformation of a hand movement in the motion of a cursor on a com...

Article
We studied adaptation to the visuo-motor transformation of a virtual and a real two-sided sliding lever. In a previous study (Sülzenbrück and Heuer in Exp Brain Res 195:153-165, 2009) we had found essentially no differences. However, adaptation had been restricted to a simplified symmetry approximation of the transformation. In the present study pr...
Article
The authors studied the trajectories of the hand and of the tip of a handheld sliding first-order lever in aiming movements. With this kind of tool, straight trajectories of the hand are generally associated with curved trajectories of the tip of the lever and vice versa. Trajectories of the tip of the lever exhibited smaller deviations from straig...
Article
Learning to operate a complex tool such as a sliding lever can be conceived as learning both a kinematic and a dynamic transformation. We investigated whether the presence of the dynamic transformation has an inhibitory or a facilitative effect on learning to control a sliding lever. Furthermore, we examined the characteristics of the internal mode...
Article
Adaptation to novel visuomotor transformations for example when navigating a cursor on a computer monitor by using a computer mouse, can be explicit or implicit. Explicit adjustments are made when people are informed about the occurrence and the type of a novel visuomotor transformation and intentionally modify their movements. Implicit adjustments...

Bei der Benutzung einer Computermaus muss der Nutzer das Verhältnis zwischen der wahrgenommenen Weite der Cursorbewegung auf dem Monitor und der Weite der Handbewegung, den sogenannten Verstärkungsfaktor, in die Bewegungsplanung einbeziehen. In der Literatur wird beschrieben, dass Menschen ihre Bewegungen an Veränderungen dieses visumotorischen Ver...
Article
Vision is the key sensory system in humans, leading to the implicit assumption that the acquisition of spider phobia is predominantly mediated through the visual pathway. We report on a congenitally blind person with spider phobia, showing that the acquisition of spider phobia does not necessarily depend on visual cues.
