Abstract : This report isolates and examines some of the emergent perceptual-motor issues raised by the new style in human- computer interaction. It concerns the use of a mouse to select commands from menus. Herein I describe the physical and perceptual characteristics of the menus and selection procedures to be studied. I also cover research from both the motor-control and the human- computer interaction literature that applies to perceptual and motor aspects of menu selection.
