Abstract : Detailed information is presented about a complex perceptual-motor skills task designed for use in the Naval Medical Research Institute's studies of isolation and confinement. Pilot data are presented demonstrating: (1) that the fully automated task is equally suitable for use during experimental conditions employing darkened or lighted test rooms, and (2) that typical performances are in a range such that either increments or decrements should be easily measurable.
