Abstract

Within various contexts, such as sports and the military, training programs are being designed to effectively and efficiently guide perceptual-motor skill acquisition. Even though this notion is often underestimated, the design of such training programs may greatly benefit from findings and theories from basic cognitive psychology. One particular basic paradigm that addresses this issue is the serial reaction time task. In the current article, we take on the challenge to review this paradigm from an applied point of view. We highlight a range of themes that have been explored with this paradigm that could have a direct relevance for the process of optimizing training procedures for perceptual-motor skill acquisition.
