Abstract : The study is the first of a series of related experiments on simple motor capacities designed to provide data of possible utility for the design of equipment. The specific purpose of the study was to measure the accuracy with which individuals can perform positioning reactions in the absence of visual corrective cues. As used here, the term positioning reaction refers to a unitary movement of an articulate member of the body from a position of rest to another position in space.
