To address this issue, we used a mental chronometry
paradigm in order to compare the time of execution of two Pilates exercises with the time of imagination of the same exercises in both VMI-I and VMI-E perspectives.
These early studies employed mental chronometry
to infer the cognitive processes associated with the experimental tasks (13,24-26).
Scientists have long made use of mental chronometry
was important for both scientific and
Of course, Jensen was not the first to address these ideas and his own accounts (Jensen, 1982a; 1987a; this issue) of the beginnings of his involvement with mental chronometry
provide informative historical background to his research.
and individual differences in cognitive processes: Common pitfalls and their solutions.
external/ visual, was investigated using a mental chronometry
paradigm by S.
While the phenomenological aspect of the detection/identification distinction no longer plays a role in mental chronometry
, the notion that it provides a reliable basis for distinguishing simple from choice reactions still has its adherents.
The two most commonly used objective, implicit assessments of MI, are mental chronometry
and mental rotation tasks.
In the second chapter, Posner's studies on mental chronometry
are described in straightforward terms, and the reader is introduced to the idea of modelling behaviour in terms of cognitive processes.
The section on 'Mental chronometry
' once again presents a variety of topics, but all reflect Bertelson's early interest in analysing subjects' performance in tasks that involve relatively simple human behaviour and in which performance is timed.
