Abstract : Forty human Ss were administered independent motor and verbal pretests and were then given learning trials on a criterion task which required both motor and verbal skills. The pretests were employed as predictors to determine the relationship of verbal and motor abilities to various stages of perceptual-motor performance. The results suggest that verbal comprehension is more important early in perceptual-motor learning while motor skill is more critical in later learning. (Author)
